french artist fabien mérelle presents ‘pentateuque’ as part of the 2013 art stage singapore exhibition at the marina bay sands. the animated sculpture depicts a man withstanding the weight of an elephant – a translation of an illustration by the same artist into three dimensional volume lightheartedly referencing the maxim ‘to have the weight on one’s shoulders’. mérelle uses the tools of humor, storytelling and whimsy to direct the spirit of his pieces, with ‘pentateuque’ a charming nod to his childhood.
