Join Galerie Camille on January 11th from 6-9PM for a show featuring sculpture artists Lorenzo Lorenzetti and Steve Glazer.

Lorenzo Lorenzetti:

This selection of work is a precarious amalgamation of human and architectural fragments bound together by refuse from construction sites. The installation highlights the contrast between decaying internal structures and redefined exterior facades.

The ‘scaffolding’ series began while the artist worked construction on residential homes in metro-Detroit. Wood trim and other construction materials are repurposed to create structural armatures for the sculptures. Life-size figures and architectural elements appear fragile and in stages of decay. These objects are an exploration of alternative materials and processes which blur the line between coming together and falling apart.

Steve Glazer:

My work, The Motor City Griot Society, has been a personal preoccupation since 2013. A Griot is a West African minstrel, troubadour, historian, fortune teller and entertainer. The tribal Griot may know more about your family history then you will ever know, as well as the family history of all of our neighbors. If you seek information or advice on an important matter, the Griot may be who you turn toIf a song or prayer is needed to bring rain or ward off evil spirits, the Griot may be your man.

As each piece is completed, it becomes an inductee into “the society”. All have the basic shape of a human face, but their internal powers take them beyond. Each of these elements are part of the internal power each character possesses in order to bring forth the new world.

The show will run through January 26th.
