The artist duo, Elisa Roy, is coming from the Fine Art School, and Sebastien Pineau who has graduated from a design school, are mixing their approach to create wooden totems and paper structures.
We Are Vertikal erects totems coming directly from the bestiary of mythological goddesses and gods. The duo is passionate about the representations of the sacred in different cultures.
The experimentation around raw materials, textures and colors is bringing forward a visual contrast that plunges us in a variety of universes. The photomontage is, on its side, explored in a unique layout, which is specific to We Are Vertikal. It’s a layout that raises higher, 30x80cms. Some places haunted by their own stories are collected through urban exploration and converted to a Vertikal design. Above this scheme, a spacetime is created by the duo to bring their entities to life.
