It is initially with Photoshop that Lancelot Michel puts his feet into creation. This is followed by a work of sculpture and molding often inspired by low reliefs. In this way, oscillating from one technique to another, from digital to material, he reveals a world marked by the collapse of its borders. A bewitching homogenization told in the first person. It doesn't matter how many days have passed or whose flesh it is; we move forward each day between our comforter and the mist, in the light of a cell phone, with the irrepressible desire to recompose.
During his residency at the Fonderie Darling, Lancelot Michel plans to focus on writing as well as on the practice of ceramics. These two works of research will be carried out in concert, one always enriching the other in its forms as well as in its narration.
Lancelot Michel lives and works between Montpellier and Brussels. He graduated from the School of Fine Arts of Montpellier (ESBAMOCO) in 2019. He recently co-directed Muselé-e and Muselé-e 2, alongside Ugo Masciave and Baptiste Eybert, two self-financed pop-up exhibitions that brought together visual and sound artists for a few fiery nights and days. He now has his studio in Brussels but continues to operate tenacious links between the two cities.
