Alain Delorme: Murmurations

  • Posted by SHFT on November 20, 2013 in Art
  • Like a heaving, undulating black cloud, the sight of a flock of starlings in flight is one of nature's great visual delights. In Murmurations, Alain Delorme [previously] recreates the iridescent spectacle in digital form. But what in the photos appear as graceful birds are not birds at all; they are images of plastic bags, thousands of them, meticulously arranged by the artist to represent murmurations.

    Delorme's "ephemeral plastic sculptures" turn Land Art on its head, and build on an ouevre that slyly explores the absurdities of excess in consumer culture. The French artist recently wrapped a showing of the oversized (4' x 6') inket prints at Taubert Contemporary in Berlin.
