Massive Sculptures that Materialize Tension

In case you don’t recall Fabrice Le Nezet’s name, take a look back at when we first introduced his work – mind-blowing concrete and metal sculpture concepts that will leave you slack-jawed. His latest sculpture concept, Elasticity, will cause the same effect and leave you equally amazed.


The project was designed with the idea of being installed within a train station in Hackney, a London borough, with an objective that was to “materialize” tension. The pieces have a way of making you feel the weight and stretch and making you forget that they don’t move. You kind of expect them to bounce since the metal bars give you the initial impression that they’re elastic.


Metal bars, some straight and some bent, appear to be stretched under the weight of the massive blocks of concrete.
