Sladmor Gallery, 32 Bruton Place, W1J 6NW
4th May – 10th June 2011
The Sladmor Gallery in Mayfair will be hosting a month-long sculptural exhibition of insects by Edouard Martinet from next month. A twenty-first century ‘Animalier’, Martinet creates a range of unusual and unique works of art using only discarded car parts with astonishing life-like results.
Each sculpture is meticulously assembled, polished and finished to such a high standard, using a variety of ‘found’ materials, that they almost resemble the real thing at first glance from afar. Martinet lives and works in Rennes, near Brittany in France, where he teaches art at L’institut des Arts Appliqués.
