L’îlot leurres > Romain Rambaud, 2018

The theme of fishing has never been broached before during the Hortillonnages Festival, but this oversight has now been corrected with L’îlot leurres, a shimmering and humorous exhibit by the artist Romain Rambaud. The artist was inspired by lures which fishermen have made for centuries to deceive the fish: these carefully crafted objects in feathers or plastic, perpetuate the crafts of their ancestors. We can trace this DIY right back to the Parfait pêcheur à la ligne a cult fishing manual written in 1653! Fascinated by their aesthetics, the visual artist has produced a mischievous memorial, which sways in the water of the Hortillonnages like a fishing float. With their bright colours and shimmering textures, the lures appear as characters exhibiting the vividness of their forms, showing off their hooks with lascivious and flashy poses. Accentuated with their rhinestones and sequins, these objects which originate from the ingenuity of the fishermen question the timeless link that exists between man and animal.

The artist

Romain Rambaud

Romain Rambaud, a visual artist from the Beaux-Arts in Rennes, creates what he calls "contrary" sculptures, which force a material to extract a shape. His approach focuses on the specifics of the sites where he works. He begins with the materials available on site to intensify and enhance them. Since 2012, he teaches at the “Institut supérieur des arts appliqués” in Nantes.
