A month and a half ago I was pointed out the work of Morgane Tschiember she’s French, not sure from where, but from what I gather from her Bio of expo’s she went to school in Quimper, France. Quimper is known for it’s typical painted ceramics. Morgane’s work is not related to this, but always find this an interesting town. 

The pieces by Morgane above are called Iron Maiden and were shown at Galerie Loevenbruck, Paris in 2007. These huge coloured sheets are sheets of metal, perfectly coloured that are seemingly peeling off the wall. It seems such a simple piece or collection of pieces, but yet I have never seen anything quite like this before. They’re like perfectly peeling walls, revealing the next colour of the wall beneath. However when you think of the sheets of peeling sheets of metal it puts the whole piece in a new dimension, makes you want to touch and feel if you really cannot bend it and tug it like a piece of paper. Being a big fan of colour it makes me a very very happy person. 

Below I have also collected some photos of Morgane’s Pop Up Collection from 2008 also presented in Galerie Loevenbruck.
