Franck K
Ectoplasm II by Franck K - Stainless steel sculpture, reflections, light, vision

2018

About the Item

Ectoplasm II is a unique mirror-polished stainless steel sculpture and burnt oak wood base by contemporary artist Franck K, dimensions are 153 × 59 × 22 cm (60.2 × 23.2 × 8.7 in). The sculpture is signed and comes with a certificate of authenticity. The sculpture's title alludes to ectoplasm, the unidentified material that, according to parapsychology, gives spirits form and materializes when a medium is in a trance. The artist drew inspiration for these sculptures, specifically for the form and reflections on his other works, when creating them. The stainless steel creations by Franck K interact with the surrounding light and reflections. The smooth, polished surface of these sculptures is distorted by lumps and hollows. Inspired by the waves and reflections on the sea's surface, they appear to be in constant motion. Franck K's sculptures, which directly reference optical art, challenge our understanding of reality and stimulate viewers' imagination. As viewers move around the sculpture, they take on the role of "architects of their own work," influencing the shapes and colours that appear and disappear on it like ephemeral visions. French contemporary sculptor Franck K works and lives in the south-west of France, close to Pau. His self-taught career started in the family business's boiler-making workshop, where he first learned how to work with materials as a child, especially metal. Its technical expertise provides a strong base upon which the calibre of its work is constructed. His artistic approach began when he created his first slate sculpture at the age of eight.
