One person’s junk is another person’s treasure - or another person’s art supplies. These awesome animal sculptures are called Salvageables. They’re the work of artist Nathalie Trépanier, who creates them using just about any discarded inanimate object or parts of objects that she can find. She transforms scattered abandoned items into wondrous creatures that look like they’re about to get up and walk, trot, swim, or fly away.
“I’m a treasure hunter, either on a beach in Gaspésie, in the garbage cans of my neighbourhood or in an industrial scrap yard… All of a sudden, in these piles of inanimate objects, I discover strange and zany beings who call out to me. This sets the stage for the birth of another character in my series of “Salvageables.”
The longer you look at them, the more elements you’ll recognize - silverware, telephones, bits of musical instruments, and on and on. We can’t help but think that these creatures would make amazing characters in a stop-motion animation film.
