DRAG²

It deals with a production process inspired by the traditional plaster dragging technique in wich the plaster is constrained in shape by a profile while hardening. This technique traditionally used to produce ornamental cornices is adapted here in order to serially produce various typologies of objects thanks to a single apparatus. The process results in an infinite variation of shapes, all based on solids of revolution.

With Drag², Drag has evolved into a larger collection of objects. The production process has been rethought to become more efficient. Nevertheless no concession has been made neither concerning the qualities of our pieces nor the craftsmanship involved. Drag² is still crafted in Belgium!

Drag is part of the collection of the Fonds National d’Art Contemporain (National Collection of Contemporary Art)
