Étienne Bossut creates sculptures using his system of producing images by making casts of objects. Resorting only to plastic, he faithfully reproduces objects taken from daily life or the history of art, such as cans, tires, refrigerators, cross-country skis, as well as puddles of water, mirrors and monochrome paintings. Plastic replaces original materials such as wood, iron, clay and so on, while allowing the artist to capture objects and reproduce them as often as he likes. By offering us real fake copies or rough doubles, Bossut playfully subverts the traditional conventions between original, copy, artwork and imitation.
