About

In his studio in New York City, French Canadian artist David Altmejd constructs "The Vessel" (2011) and "The Swarm" (2011), massive Plexiglass and plaster sculptures that Altmejd describes as "laboratories" within which he can experiment with different materials and ideas, contrasting images of menace with sensual tenderness.
