Léopold Lescop, graduated of ENSAD Paris in 2010, is driven by a search for meaning in different directions of fantasy, poetry, science and technology.
He questions magical thinking, the mechanisms of chance and evolution, the relationship between nature and artefact, changes in paradigms.
To practice this personal artistic questioning, he diverts materials, techniques, protocols, uses and contexts.
For TakeCaire Leopold Lescop created three collections, working with three different artisans;
around copper with “This is Bombé!” a collection of objects and jewels with patterns repetitive and variable resonating with the tradition of the Islamic arabesque in a resolutely contemporary way,
around Khayameya with the collections of cushions “Revival” where he reinvents the traditional knowhow of tent making by diverting the implementation and the chosen textiles and “Bump!” with Camel and Chamo poufs, calling upon diamond and star chessboard graphics that accentuate their inflated and comfortable effect.
