Installations by Alexandre Joly.
All I keep thinking is: where did all the feathers come from?
yeah, very cool looking piece, but I hate to think they’re real feathers
ieeew, feathers.. ! :S fkn emo.
Maybe he spent like 6months on a peacock farm and picked up every feather that dropped..
Hahaha I was thinking the same.
Beautiful work though
peacock feathers!! Love it. Amazing work!
Does this remind anyone of Andy Goldsworthy, Rivers and Tides?
exactly what i thought!!!!
(And I also hope he picked them at the farm)
this is borderline animal cruelty…
It’s probably because I watch too much Sci Fi, but the final images are reminiscent of some strange planet from Star Trek. Incredible idea and use of the feathers… If they aren’t faux, I hope they were gathered humanely.
look at the site, he is constantly playing with taxidermy animals and what not in the work…though, idk, maybe Jolly_go could look into roadkill as a more reasonable and interesting source material. . +
The first few images look like illustrations, the way they have been photographed almost doesn’t look real, it’s a really interesting effect. I’m not sure I understand the reasoning behind hanging mass amounts of feathers in the woods though, they almost look like wrapped up Christmas trees or hammocks.
There’s a Belgian artist called Jan Fabre who sticks green beatles to all sorts of stuff like mannequins and skulls or in this case ceilings and a huge globe.
then there’s always Damien Hirst:
