Arnaud Rivieren is a Dubai-based sculptor. He sources scrap metal from the industrial areas of Dubai and transforms these found steel fixtures, dense tubing and heavy machinery into objects that propose a quiet rapport between levity and formal rigor. The apparent nimbleness of the objects that he creates is contradicted by their volume and creation, welding and heating the steel to high temperatures until it begins to bend under its own weight. This 'moment of inertia' is pivotal to the creation of the work but also the tensions that Rivieren visualizes as spatial relationships in steel.
