Stellantis is a project I’ve been working on for a long time, not that it was the most complicated project but because I wanted to make sure to get all the details right. I had this idea about someone stealing stars from the night sky and I thought it would be nice if it’s done with the help of an everyday object that we all can relate to. I thought that a giant tweezer could be an interesting object and I went on a search to try to find one. It was easier said than done and as I realized they don’t make them particulary big I decided that the best way to make it come to life would be to build one. The model in the image, Stella, helped me bring it to life as she also works as a production designer on films and we found a blacksmith in Prague that could help us. We ended up with a 150 cm solid aluminium piece, fully functional. This object is currently on display as part of the exhibition in Seoul Art Center until September 2019.
Look through the images and video below to see how it was created.
