Jonathan Monaghan, Apollo Belvedere, 2021, modèle 3D

Here we reveal Jonathan Monaghan’s plans to carve his surreal interpretation of the Apollo Belvedere sculpture from antiquity out of marble. Rendered life-sized and with a luxurious leather-like skin, this rendition of an iconic bust conjures notions of confinement by technology and materialism. The work is a study in contrasts; between the soft and hard, the virtual and physical, and the past and future. Using a CNC robotic milling process, this sculpture will be carved out of a solid block of Carrara marble. A virtual translation of the sculpture is presented here.
