Mia Fernandez Medinacelli, Paradoxides
Frederik Le Roy
My works are a mix between references, some come from ancient architecture and others come from anatomies of extinct animals such as the Paradoxides or still alive crustaceous. The technique I use of the making of my works is what stands out, I use templates of different shapes and sizes. Working on bigger spaces such as walls or floors is the final step of my works. The idea is to reach a monumental size, as big as possible to resemble the ancient temples or statues.
I make my own templates as imperfect as possible because only then I find more interesting patterns. Charcoal is my main tool when I work in bigger spaces, because it fades away eventually. If my work couldn’t survive for many days or hours then so be it, having a permanent work without change becomes normal and people might pass by unaware of it existence.
