  • Catalogue Essay

    “I feel like my work is quite self-referential. I feel that it has become complex enough to be used as a source of inspiration for my future works. I like to think that when the work evolves, it is not because of something coming from the outside, but rather something coming from inside of it, like a mutation. But of course, it would be naive of me to think that nothing comes from the outside. I like to think so conceptually, but really, my "visual legacy" comes very much from nature and display. The way it is formalized in my work is not by trying to recreate it perfectly, but rather by letting the materials do what they can do and be what they are. That way the result feels more real and alive.” (David Altmejd, in an interview with V. de Bellis, Flash Art.online).
