The Paris-based artist (b.1986) is known for his surreal figurative sculptures that combine archaic and futuristic worlds. His debut solo exhibition in Hong Kong evokes archaic forms and are inspired by contemporary, but also mythological and futuristic worlds. His works are often crafted from the very modern material of aluminium, which he expands upon through experimentation and in combination with other metals.
The presentation captivates viewers with their intricate designs and profound meaning, transporting them into a fantastical world. Deeply experimental, his work is a constant search for new formal possibilities, which he explores through relentless experimentation. By creating uncanny familiar forms, whether animal or human, Appriou has developed a unique, alchemical approach to creation.
