Structures productives

21 May - 5 July 2014

On the theme of artificial reefs, artconnexion presents sculptures, photographs and videos from Nicolas Floc'h's project Structures productives.

These reefs, underwater cities built by man and immersed along the coast, are inverted ruins that aim to colonise fauna and flora. Over the years, these structures are transformed into real living sculptures. Their forms refer to a certain history of architecture, ranging from primitive habitats to contemporary buildings.

For three years, Nicolas Floc'h has been listing, classifying and reproducing these reefs through his models and photographs. At the crossroads of scientific research, sculpture, architecture and photography, the artist transposes these hybrid ecosystems, created to be hidden, in the exhibition.
