Pliny's Sorrow Aalscholver Johan Creten

Pliny's Sorrow, 108 x 102 x 45 cm, 2010, bronze, ed 1/3, price on request

... Pliny the Younger:
If having the pictures of the departed placed in our homes lightens sorrow, how much more those public representations of them which are not only memorials of their air and countenance, but of their glory and honour besides!

Pliny’s Sorrow, in een monumentale versie kreeg dit beeld van Johan Creten een definitieve plek aan het Red Star Line Museum aan de Rijnkaai in Antwerpen.
Net daar waar de landverhuizers van de Red Star Line inscheepten op een reis naar een beter leven, staat het complexe beeld symbool voor de moed van het individu, dat zich opmaakt voor een lange reis. Kwetsbaar en dapper tegelijkertijd.
Red Star Line Museum, permanent

Strange Fruit, library series

More then 15 years after modeling Strange Fruit Johan Creten wanted to make a small ‘Library’ series in an edition of 7 + 2 ap: 
a sculpture that would be at home in a intimate domestic setting. 
Each sculpture has a different patina. After finishing the last edition the moulds were all destroyed.
