The sculptures of Ciro Duclos always start with the fascination for a certain material. When he was younger, he spent a lot of time on construction sites. Looking at architecture, he started questioning how materials behave and where they come from. Material research is at the base of his process in making new works. Marble, steel and glass are difficult materials to control, but the favorites of Ciro. He likes to play with the expectation pattern of the viewer about common material and put this to the test. In multiple works, he counter balances solid objects by making them extremely fragile.
Ciro Duclos gratuated from the Royal Academy for the arts in The Hague. His work is in the collections of Stedelijk Museum Den Bosch and OKA foundation.
