About the artwork
Since the beginning of his practice, Marc Dulude has used materials in an experimental way : mirror, bicycles, plastic, plaster, magnets… His practice is
not linked to a material, but to the effect he might get from it. For the hydrocal ( gypsum ciment), the material – subject of his works, it meant taking into account its whiteness, its powdered appearance and to test its malleability: the woollen threads covered in this product allow for a better strength which varies depending on the temperature and humidity of the location. Poetic and surprise factor, the unpredictability directs the faith of the art work in conjunction with gravity and time.
