Gaspard Delachaux’s practice ranges from sculpture and drawing to film making and installation. He came to me with the intention of building an online portfolio that would document the richess and variety of his life-work.
The website stems from the intention to create synergies between the graphic language and the work itself. A heap of creatures introduce the site, slowly making the artist’s name visible. Inspired first by an animation, they’re now dynamicaly generated by the site and each creature has an independant behavior. They stand as poetic reminder, linking the artworks together and inviting the viewer to look further.
The floating black space then leaves room for the index to pile up, bringing back physicality, especially the weight of the sculptures, in the abstract context of the digital world.
