A Documentary About Artist Edouard Martinet’s Extraordinary Animal and Insect Sculptures

Sladmore Contemporary has created a wonderful documentary about the extraordinary animal and insect sculptures that French artist Edouard Martine builds out of salvaged parts and junk.

Take one workshop full of junk and a Frenchman with an eye for detail (not to mention an obsession with bugs) and you will find the most eclectic mix of metal insects this side of a sci-fi novel. This short documentary follows Edouard Martinet’s patient and extraordinary process as he creates sculptures that are utterly beautiful, distinctly creepy and somehow completely true to nature. All this despite his medium being piles of bent metal and old rusty bicycles.
