Capp Street Project: Michel Blazy

September 05, 2002 to September 28, 2002

French artist Michel Blazy creates spare, quirkily beautiful sculptures out of humble and ephemeral materials, including mold, grass, sprouts, soap bubbles, plastic bags and even toilet paper. Resembling a cross between a science experiment, avant-garde gardening and arte povera, his works examine processes of growth and degeneration. Blazy's installations are designed to be unpredictable; they evolve and decay, suggesting metaphors for various systems of social behavior as they are transformed often fatally over time. For this solo project, Blazy will install a work in the nave of CCAC's architecturally renowned San Francisco campus.
