Folles et Fous

Kayak (Canada) - - HISTORY MYSTERY -

Their name trans­lates as some­thing like “The Cra­zies,” and this group of friends from the New Brunswick Col­lege of Craft and De­sign in Fred­er­ic­ton def­i­nitely lived up to it. Formed in the late 1990s, Folles et Fous felt strongly that art should re­flect the en­vi­ron­ment, so they placed their sculp­tures and projects in hard-to-reach places that forced au­di­ences to trek through na­ture. Pic­ture a pa­per sculp­ture placed del­i­cately on a wa­ter lily in a swamp or a wooden statue perched high in a tree and you get the idea.
