Argos

Club Argonaut Collection 2016
Metall Diameter 70 - 120 cm The trophy lamps of Patrick Rampelotto are at the core of his cultural piracy practice. Every lamp consists in a unique cluster of metal and plastic pieces, either purchased in flea markets or from private collections. As the trophies are dismantled and then reassembled, they become evermore abstracted from their original purpose. They are taken to another level as they become unrecognizable. The trophy lamps, just like trophies themselves, symbolize an outstanding achievement. But they bear a new signature: the inimitable formal language invented by Rampelotto. Each lamp evokes a flamboyant explosion, as well as a creature of rough majesty. In their witty elegance, they show striking sculptural and symbolical qualities. All in all, his trophy lamps stand for the pure exuberance of form and will.
