Tomorrow Man made by the sea - Catherine François (temporarily removed)

Breakwater at Bréarstraat, Knokke
8300 Knokke-Heist

About the artwork

Installed on a breakwater, Tomorrow Man is designed to erode and change colour. The sculpture is literally exposed to the elements: the tides, the sun, the wind and the rain. This is exactly what Cathérine François wanted her sculpture to symbolise - the struggle of mankind versus nature.

About the artist

Cathérine François mainly works using the ‘lost-wax casting method’, although she does also experiment with other materials. Many of her sculptures have holes in them, depicting a destructive energy, while showing that birth and destruction go hand in hand. Everything is constantly changing.
