Taking inspiration from mythology, antiquity, and archaeology, Léo Fourdrinier creates sculptures and installations that fuse archetypal iconographies with found objects and personal items to achieve new forms. Neon light installations bathe Fourdrinier’s sculptural works in a synthetic amber hue that recalls an artificial sunset; the light creates a dreamlike atmosphere for his surreal combinations of classical forms and technological castoffs with contrasting textures of metal, stone, and plastics. Repurposing corroded, universal symbols of the past, Fourdrinier shows how these distort understandings of contemporary and future realities.
