LE PIED, LE PULL-OVER ET LE SYSTEME DIGESTIF - DANIEL DEWAR ET GREGORY GICQUEL

Historic site and monument in Saint-Nazaire

    Between the crab claws, near the harbour master's office, on the beach lined with umbrella pines that plunges into the basin of Saint-Nazaire's outer harbour, the work consists of three sculptures representing respectively a foot, a pullover and a digestive system. Set in the sand and rocks, the gigantic figures, made of sculpted concrete blocks, will rise to a height of almost seven metres. Like fragments of bodies, architecture or port monuments, they draw up a landscape portrait of a modern civilisation subjected to erosion and the colonisation of the elements.
    Daniel Dewar and Grégory Gicquel have been working together since 1998. Self-taught in most of the techniques they use, they practice sculpture without submitting to traditional rules and integrate it into a wide range of traditional media, from textile work to ceramics, from woodcarving to stone.
