Laurent Lamarche, Fossile PL01, 2016.
Fossile PL01
Artist RegionQuebec
DescriptionLaurent Lamarche's artwork explores the dichotomy between nature and artifice through the creation of fictional living organisms, suspended in settings that evoke petri dishes, fungal blooms, or microscopic slides. As part of the artist's ATLAB series, Fossile PL01 navigates the worlds of art, technology, and science, created through the alteration and manipulation of synthetic materials but representing something wholly Lamarche's creation - not a replication or mirroring of the natural world, but an echo.
