Guillaume Castel sculpts his native landscape situated in the Bay of Morlaix in Brittany, France. The sculptor works on vegetal forms he observes in the wilderness. "Nori" takes its name from a seaweed. The idea is not to reproduce it, but to create a sculpture which contains all the elegance and fragility of Nature. As often in Guillaume Castel's work, the artwork only stands on a quiet balance on its edges. Here, the artist uses Aluminum for the first time. The polish face inside contrasts with the hammered surface on the outside. Guillaume Castel often plays on such contrast to evoke an opened imaginary seed or plant.
