I love this piece by French artist Fabien Mérelle presents “Pentateuque” as part of the 2013 Art Stage Singapore exhibition. The animated sculpture shows a man withstanding the weight of an elephant balancing upon his back. His inspiration was to reference the maxim “to have the weight on one’s shoulders” which it looks like he took quite literally. Mérelle uses the tools of humor, storytelling and whimsy to direct the spirit of his pieces. This piece in particular is an ode to his childhood.
Pentateuque by Fabien Merelle
Can you feel it? Hah!
The level of attention to detail in Fabien’s work is amazing.
