PARIS.- Carpenters Workshop Gallery is opening the first solo exhibition of Dutch artist Frederik Molenschot’s work, ATLAS 2000, from June 1 to September 16, 2023, in its Parisian space at 54 rue de la Verrerie in the Marais district of Paris. Occupying the first floor, this exhibition will feature new works from Molenschot’s latest research – Gingerblimp, Artificial Forest, Bridge Beat, S TATI CA, The Grasspeople, and Cosmos Life – offering a unique glimpse of his talent.

The Gingerblimp, Artificial Forest, and Bridge Beat series illustrate Molenschot’s expertise in using materials such as steel and bronze to create monumental and beautifully detailed pieces. Gingerblimp presents organic and strangely familiar structures, while Artificial Forest explores the tensions between nature and artifice. Bridge Beat is a series of imaginary bridges, reflecting the artist’s fascination with architecture and engineering.

Molenschot’s works embody a unique fusion of past and present, combining noble materials and elegant forms with cutting-edge technology and contemporary cultural references. Considering himself a landscape sculptor – he sculpts what he sees in landscapes.

The multidisciplinary artist – known for his innovative approach and his mastery of ancient techniques such as metalwork, foundry, and engraving, explores themes of history, nature, and technology. Creating art objects that have the power to captivate and inspire their audience.

Frederik Molenschot was born in 1981, is graduate of Design Academy Eindhoven, currently works in Amsterdam, and is part of the Dutch Design Movement. His degree was earned with studies in man and public space and he focused on connecting people and their environments.

The founder of Studio Molen, Molenschot is a blur of constant energy, forever creating and developing new ideas and inspiring people. Molenschot crafts his work by hand and displays incredible diversity. He has a deep interest in the artificial and natural elements of our surroundings. His aim is to transport the viewer’s senses to a new level.

Molenschot is best known for his cast bronze lighting structures such as his body of works City light which he hand-shaped into detailed formations to channel and direct light. His work is inspired by city lights and the night sky which visualize a vision of a future city.

He says, “If you’re an architect, your world is a building, a graphic designer works on a newspaper or a wall, while a landscape architect plays with nature itself. I try and draw all these worlds together and see what happens when they meet.”
