‘Fatality’ series – Sculptures of Bahadır Baruter / Turkish (1963) caricaturiste et fondateur de “L-manyak”, Penguen, Lombak cartoon magazines. Marié à l’écrivaine Mine Söğüt.
Ses sculptures hyper-realistes en silicone lui prennent des heures, elles requièrent beaucoup d’étapes qui ne sont pas toujours que des succès. Bahadır Baruter les créé d’abord digitalement et les impriment.
Il crée ensuite le moulage de la sculpture – faites en silicone, elles sont peintes en acrylique puis plongées dans un bocal.
Ses sculptures hyper-realistes semblent faire partie d’un cabinet de curiosité, spécimens isolés – plongés dans la solitude de leur formol.
“This is a kind of silicon, it is not easy to make and use. So, we needed to maket hat material with a crowded team. It takes long hours. The quantity of the material that we throw is much more than that we use for the exhibition. Because we tried a lot of times and we failed. It requires several steps to create a sculpture. At first, I design them at a digital media, then we print them. We take a mould on those printouts. The moulds are covered with plastering, textures are created and after that process we take a mould again and they are painted and put in that liquid places. This is not a processcan be fulfilled with a few people in a few days. A very Professional team worked on that issue for one year. Yes, I imagined, fictionalized but thesesculptures are created by a huge team. Here is the division of labor; there is a moulder dealing with modelling wax, there are other people applying textures, others working on the computer.” (Source EN : Optically addicted)
