Submerged Sculptures by Forlane 6 Studio

  • Posted by SHFT on March 1, 2013 in Art
  • There's no missing the message behind the work of scuba diving artists Mathieu Goussin and Hortense Le Calvez. The creative duo's flowing, underwater sculptures made of common oceanic trash make a direct statement on the issue of marine pollution.

    Goussin and Le Calvez call themselves Forlane 6, after the 40 year-old sailboat they call home. Both are deep sea diving professionals who earn their livings on the seas. That gives them direct, regular exposure to manmade marine trash, which translates into artwork that is equally direct.

    Made of common sea trash like plastic streamers, furniture, clothes, and bottles, the sculptures float and weave underwater like organic creatures. As they put it, "this weightless and slow aesthetic contradicts the usual way objects are consumed and disposed of in an inconsiderate speed."
