"Surfer un arbre" is a project directed by Nicolas Floc'h assisted by Xavier Moulin. A twelve artists, designers or again dancers are called to shape a tree in riding objects, looking like alais and paipos standards. Fabrication lasts for one week in the contemporary art center Passerelle before having a crash-test day in La Palue's waves, surf spot in Crozon peninsula. The "Riding a Red Cedar" set proposes many objects. A first alaia board shows ridges on its belly, like a whale's one. Ridges enable a maximal weight reduction of the board with a great deal of flex, solidity and water flow. A paipo is also drawn in a most weight reduction way, searching the limit of the material dealing with the wave contact. A bodysurf handplane comes wood flippers swaping their flexibility for a better edging in the wave. Then, the bodysurfer can take far supports, behing and ahead him.
L'univers maritime, les relations, connexions entre l'humain et le marin, constituent le territoire d'investigation d'Edgar Flauw. Il a étudié le design à l’école Européenne Supérieure d’Arts de Bretagne (EESAB). Il vit et travaille depuis à Coat-Méal, près de Brest. Les côtes bretonnes sont devenues une extension de son atelier, elles sont à la fois source d'inspiration, matière brut dans laquelle puiser et champs d'expérimentation. Le fil rouge de ses recherches est très lié à son expérience de surfeur, dont il se sert pour imaginer et fabriquer de nouveaux objets, usages, moyens de produire, manières d’habiter, explorant ainsi des enjeux contemporains. site web : actualités : Marine universe, relationships, connections between human and sea, constitute the investigation territory of Edgar Flauw. He studied design at European Superior Art School of Brittany (EESAB). Since, he lives and works in Coat-Meal, near Brest (Brittany, France). Breton coasts became an extension of his workshop, they are both inspiration, raw matter in which he can draw and experimentation territory. The governing principle of its research is very linked to its surfer's experience, which he uses to imagine and make new things, uses, means of production, ways of living, thus exploring contemporary issues. website : news :
