Ocean Memories, 2017
Embracing the tension between solid and liquid states in nature, Mathieu Lehanneur’s Ocean Memories series consists of benches and tables made of sturdy marble or heavy brass with the dynamism of the oceans’ surface as its subject. Using CGI software to render lifelike undulations of waves, his pieces are machine-carved and hand-polished, reminiscent of a moment frozen in time.
