This series of artworks chronicles 18 months of small triumphs over difficulties, sacrifices, self-doubts and burdens as well as a few sleepless nights. But above all, a year and a half of small joys, gratitude, achievements and satisfaction. In other words, tons of emotions.
We wanted something that would capture these fleeting moments, preserve them and allow their stories to be told. Photographer Anne-Lise Vullioud accompanied Laurent for several months as he built the SUP-Surfboards. She captured these fleeting moments with her artistic flair and immortalized them in her camera.
"Clamps" shows the construction of the rails, when the 14 layers of the 3m long spruce wood sheets is glued both faces, fixed over the mould and pressed with more than 30 clamps on strategical points. All must be done within 35 minutes before the glue gets hard. It's a very intense work where good help and synchronisation is needed.
This tableau offers a double reading which empasizes the singular character of the work. Either in front, experiencing the picture that has been printed edge-to-edge on a hand-brushed épicea wood support, or sideways discovering the assembled frame made of different layers of stained skateboard veneers.
