by @industrialkonzept Team

Carpenters Workshop Gallery presents acclaimed Dutch artist Frederik Molenschot's first solo show , featuring his remarkable work ATLAS 2000. From June 1st to September 16th, 2023, art lovers can enjoy Molenschot's extraordinary creations at the Paris Exhibition Hall, located in the lively Marais area at 54 Rue de la Verrerie.

On the first floor, this highly anticipated exhibition takes center stage, unveiling a collection of new works including Gingerblimp, Artificial Forest, Bridge Beat, S TATI CA, The Grasspeople and Cosmos Life. It offers an exclusive insight into the artist's immense talent and visionary approach.

Molenschot's expertise in working with materials such as steel and bronze is particularly evident in the Gingerblimp, Artificial Forest and Bridge Beat series, where he creates monumental and intricately detailed pieces. Gingerblimp presents organic structures that exude a strangely familiar allure, while Artificial Forest explores the fragile interplay between nature and artificiality. The Bridge Beat series takes us into a world of fantasy, reflecting the artist's fascination with architecture and engineering.

FREDERIK MOLENSCHOT Portrait

About Frederik Molenschot

Born in 1981, Frederik Molenschot graduated from the renowned Design Academy Eindhoven and is an influential figure in the Dutch design movement. Currently based in Amsterdam, he is the visionary founder of Studio Molen and is constantly generating new ideas that inspire others with his boundless energy. Molenschot's work encompasses a variety of artistic expressions and is driven by his deep interest in the coexistence of man-made and natural elements in our environment. His ultimate goal is to transport the viewer's senses into unexplored realms of perception.

Molenschot's cast bronze light structures, particularly his City Light series, have earned him significant recognition. Through meticulous hand sculpting and intricate formations, he directs light and draws inspiration from cityscapes and the celestial glow of the night sky to offer a visionary glimpse into the cities of the future.

Reflecting on his artistic philosophy, Molenschot shares: "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."
