Sculptor Jean-Marc Laroche shares with us his fantasy of eternal life with the installation, Lovers from the Hereafter, featuring intertwining skeletons embracing one another. The installation will be on view at the Museum of Sex beginning October 5th, 2011 and includes two human-sized sculptures made of varnished resin and jointed with an invisible steel framework – an effect which resembles real bones. With regards to the Lovers from the Hereafter sculptures, Jean-Marc said, “They are themselves quite joyful and they thumb their noses at death and present the afterlife as a roll in the hay.”
Throughout his career as a sculptor, he has created several erotic, sensual works, which have been brought together for this installation. Born in Paris in 1959, Jean-Marc Laroche began his career as a sculptor in the early 1990s. Very much marked by the world of cinematography, he has exhibited at the Avoriaz and Brussels fantasy film festivals several times, where his work has met with great public success and caught the attention of directors and producers worldwide.
