About the Artist
Sensitized by the overconsumption that strikes our industrialized societies, it appropriates a usual material rich in colors: the drink can known to all, compressed and formatted according to its concept "TRANSFORM'ARTKOMPRESS®".
From used cans, ALFREDO LONGO strives to give them a new life: turn them into works of art!
Sometimes symbolic, animal, monumental or with a human face, his work is striking with truth, with harmonious and powerful movements.
Through his art, ALFREDO LONGO encourages the gesture of sorting playfully, original but above all, artistic!
Quentin Carnaille was born in Roubaix in 1984. After studying architecture (graduated in 2009 from the Higher Institute of Architecture of Tournai), he made his first pieces in which he integrates old mechanisms watchmakers. Diverted from their primary vocation, these become the ornaments of jewels or accessories which, beyond their decorative aspect, already pose the question of the time and the relativity of its passage, recurring theme in the work of the artist.
This first phase of research follows a period of intense creativity during which Carnaille diversifies its use of watchmaking mechanisms. Freed from their mechanical arrangement, interconnected by magnets, they now look like real sculptures. This is how the series "Horlogerie" is born, in which the artist expresses an intimate rhythm and gives his interrogations a universal scope by turning to the future. Composed of original creations and tributes to certain iconic works, "Horlogerie" installs Quentin Carnaille in the artistic landscape.
