Alexis Cladière (36recyclab) : ‘PARASIT’ (Street Art)

::

The work of Alexis Cladière (36recyclab) incorporates architecture, design and engineering as well as sculpture, graphic arts and skateboards culture. He builds everything himself from 3D structures, photos, fonts and logos to large scale street exhibitions of tape cutting and 3D modelling. His style has become synonymous with clean, contemporary architectural design and structured visceral compositions, which use the interplay between angles and solidity to create fresh perspectives.

“These posters you see in the streets of Paris (Bastille-Gare De Lyon) are urban grafts that represent an architecture project of mine, started in 2004 called ‘PARASIT’: it’s an independent structure which is fixed on a building, that lives due to an existent apparatus and lives off of it’s resources (water, electricity, gas, communication networks).

The little part is the inside apartment, the biggest part outside, in front of the building, and it houses the tubes and piping that it feeds off of. I made 3D models of ‘PARASIT’ recently and put them in the streets, completely assembled. Passers by seemed to think that they were machines, photocopiers or survelliance cameras. That is the brilliance of art….People see what they want to see.” Alexis Cladière

Shinichi Maruyama : “Kusho” Series (Photography)

“Silent, swift, elegant, the [actors'] actions are eminently transitive, operative, tinged with a mixture of strength and subtlety which marks the Japanese repertoire of gestures and which is a kind of aesthetic envelope, here again we come to that – exemption from meaning – that westerners can barely understand.”

Roland Barthes – The Empire of Signs (1970)

The ‘Kusho’ series consists of twenty-three large scale colour photographs that represent the interplay of black ink and water, both in midair and on white surfaces. The phenomenon that Maruyama captures of the two liquids colliding a millisecond before they merge is the result of various actions and devices. The resultant images literally deconstruct the material elements of ink drawing and calligraphy, allowing us to see in extraordinary detail the chemical and physical processes invisible to the naked eye.
