Anatomical Sculptures by Claude-Olivier Guay Transform to Reveal Intricate Wire Creatures

[vimeo 169745827 w=800 h=534]

At the outset, these sculptures by artist Claude-Olivier Guay appear like a jumble of wire and feathers folded into a heap, but each hides a remarkable secret. Working only with a pair of pliers, Guay folds, bends, and twists an inner framework of hidden creatures that dramatically transform with a bit of manual manipulation. In his 2015 piece titled La Tanière the bust of a woman’s figure turns completely into an angry wolf, or the figure of a man’s head bursts into a cloud of 40 locusts in a piece called Cénotaphe.

Guay studied visual arts at the Université du Québec à Montréal and is currently based in Québec City. You can see several more works on his website. (via Colossal Submissions, thnx Virginia!)
