Work from the Collection

Le déguisement

Date: 2014
Medium: Mixed media
Collection: Lafayette anticipations - Fonds de dotation Famille Moulin
At first glance, the installation Le déguisement evokes a simplicity of form and materials, but in this work which is more complex than it appears, Éric Van de Walle has sought a balance in a deconstructed form. He produced this work between January and June 2014 as part of a residency at Lafayette Anticipations, prior to its opening to the public. This experience allowed him to evolve his practice as a designer and his conception of the object towards a more visual, artistic approach. Using raw materials recovered on site, he created an installation whose elements are reminiscent of those of a dressing table, a practical piece of furniture intended for grooming, without explicitly claiming to be so.
