Of hair and plastic

France // 2016 // 90′ // Color
Lucas Braastad, plastic artist, creates hybrid creatures by assembling different children’s toys and naturalized animal corpses. Through the communion of skin and plastic, he gives birth to strange beings imbued with violence, sex, death but also innocence and childhood. They are also the ones who weave a fragmented portrait of the plastic artist.
The project received support from the Poitou-Charentes Region and the Vienne Department. Winner of Le Défi Jeune 2012, it received the support of a hundred or so Internet users during the ULULE campaign finalised in July 2015.
