Walking through one of Julien Salaud’s installations is like exploring the framework of a computer game in virtual reality. This modern sense clashes with a primitive vibe present in the futuristic cave drawings. In his latest series of installations, called ‘Stellar Cave,’ you will find animals like birds, deer, and even a humans, frozen in place.
The complex installations are made up of wrapped thread glowing under ultraviolet lights. In an interview with Trend Tablet Salaud explains, “There are different kinds of beauty. I suppose the one I am interested in is like a fruit: I am not following a logical analysis, and I am not trying to have some concept. I am rather into contemplation, which implies taking some time.”
