Concept

For the sculptures wood of the International Center of Art and Landscape at Vassivière Island, Koo Jeong A has designed a concrete sculpture including the practice of skate, roller or BMX.

Specific features

This 'skatable artwork' is a 15cm thick concrete shell reinforced with a single reinforcement net. The complexe shapes, of which several bowls, a craddle and two tunnels, have been realized by the skater association BRUSK by concrete spraying and surface hand finishing. The scupulture is covered by a green phosphorescent painting. More information on www.escaut.org
