Turbulent and elastic, the body bends and folds beautifully to fit the future Man has imagined for it. As He drapes himself in the comfort of his own inventions, He may be reminded of his own obsolescence. Man and machine share this fragile quality, but, for now at least, only Man can make his peace with it.

Axel Morin's UNTITLED series explores and celebrates this. The artist also seems to play with the materiality of his subjects: here the engine is reduced to two dimensions, while the male silhouette offers a new and surprising geometry. Morin's style is essentialist and unencumbered, however, this leaves space for a more poetic reading of his work. The lens may distort the familiar, but the ink on paper delivers a clear message: things are not always as they seem.
