PA Talks 09 – Cyril Lancelin
In a candid conversation with Hamid Hassanzadeh, founder of PA, Lancelin talked about some of his mesmerizing works.
About Cyril Lancelin:-
Cyril Lancelin develops a hybrid work of sculptures, immersive installations, drawings, and virtual experiences. Along with this, he also creates videos that forge links between the physical and the fictional. However, it is from a plastic vocabulary based on primitive geometry, that he links architecture and the human body.
He began his career working for architects as well as artists in Paris and Los Angeles. Lancelin did so by using 3D modeling techniques and virtual images developed in the 1990s. He is using VR and AR in his exploration of tridimensional matter research. His practice is shaped by immersion and movement, by a search for a world that is half data, half-real. Therefore, the notions of repetition and parametricism are recurring themes in his work. The artist sets up a connected territory between his practices and the experience of the public. Digital or real, his works offer an essentially optimistic vision, drawing an artificial and experiential landscape.
Cyril Lancelin is known for famous works such as Knot, a giant immersive sculpture in Hangzhou. The Pyramid Sphere again an immersive sculpture in Philadelphia.
The joyful use of sculptures combined with technology and art takes viewers to Cyril’s digital world. He benefits from the parametrical tool’s typical shapes and volumetric spaces. Lancelin used the same to invent his quirky installations. In his astonishing world, he wants viewers to experience and engage in art while questioning their habitat.
