Remy Aillaud

Born in 1987, this young plastic artist grew up in a world undergoing technological change. Of course, he fed his imagination to this popular culture which is reflected everywhere in our society. But he also had a vocation – precocious – as a sculptor. And it was natural that he included the theme of the robot in his creations. It is from motorcycles – that other symbol of modernity – that it first borrows most of its materials. Motorcycles often signed by prestigious industrial designers – like Ducati – which he emphasizes in its names. Motorcycles from which he selects the parts most analogous to the human silhouette, such as the fuel tank, pistons and headlights. Through the work of twisting and assembling, they become threatening busts, arms and heads. A unique wheel completes their reinvention, which gives his metallic creations a vertical station. Thus, hybrid and richly chromatized beings take shape. They are crossed by electric flows which reinforce their general dynamism. And, let’s face it, we wouldn’t want them to start living their own way. But these new creatures, which look so much like robots, are fortunately only works of art: this is all the mischief of their creator.
