A Tank of Thread by Jannick Deslauriers

February 28, 2012

We thought that we had posted the work of Montreal's Jannick Deslauriers on the site from this past Fall, where the artist create the fragile, large-format tank installation that was constructed and held together by black thread. We love how the artist takes a seemingly ruthless, powerful weapon of war and recreates with the most delicate of materials. The work was on display at Toronto's Cooper Cole (then Show & Tell) in late 2011. (images via)
