Get your dose of contemporary art at the Tanks Arts Centre as Parisian artist Laure Colomer shares her skills and exhibits her plaster sculptures from January 15 to February 24, 2016.
The Parisian artist is fascinated by the line between the world of animals and humans, the transition between night and day as well as sleep and insomnia which can be seen in her Aquatile series. In here, she worked with animals that becomes a sort of mirage along with the element of darkness.
One of the sculpture in the series is called Sky Island where a large shark sails majestically into the distant waters. On its body, a myriad of stars are projected making it seem like it is slowly moving in the dark water. Another is the Ouroboros, a snake biting its tail or a 'tail devourer' which symbolises immortality or eternal life. Lastly, Sink a giant octopus made of fabrics and latex. It is suspended and is being carried away by invisible water.
The exhibit launches on January 15 at 6pm and will be available for viewing from 9am to 4:30pm on weekdays while 9am to 2:30pm only on weekends.
