BMW Open Work by Frieze
The acclaimed
Paris-based artist Camille Blatrix has been consecrated for a third
book of BMW Open Work by Frieze. Curated by Attilia Fattori
Franchini, BMW Open Work gives artists a height to lift the
bounds of their artistic work, starting a plan with a
artistic discourse between arts, technology, engineering and pattern to
pursue their use in innovative new directions. Blatrix’s
sculptures are interjected with coded references, formulating emotionally
charged, supernatural objects that offer new relational possibilities.
Machine-like in their appearance, a works costume a artist’s
labor, any sculpture mixing industrially built elements with
those that are meticulously domestic regulating a accumulation of traditional
techniques. Blatrix presents his new elect for BMW Open Work at
Frieze London 2019.

car though remade into bizarre and unknown forms, divided from
automotive functionality. The categorical sculpture is presented in front of
a BMW M850i Convertible (combined fuel 10,8 – 10,6 l/100 km; combined
CO2 emissions: 246 – 241 g/km). This conscious arrangement suggests a
discourse between a pattern and a vehicle, a lift of captivate and
repulsion, informed nonetheless uncanny. The vehicle, placed between spaces,
also becomes a dialectical partial of Blatrix’s installation, raising
questions about functionality and desire, looking during a sculpture and
noticing itself in it, even if declined in a different
Apart from a categorical work, a array of eerily synthetic
sculptures, accompanied by a hypnotizing sound work, transforms the
BMW Lounge into an heated though insinuate environment.

The lively refrain “Come to my harms and let your worries
”, sung by Blatrix’ “Sirens”, dramatizes a seductive,
fascinating lift exerted by functionality and industrial processes.
Making use of BMW Individual’s technical skills and craftsmanship,
Sirens” so explores a primal and romantic relationships
to labor, make and materiality, formulating a discourse about
sources of desire.
