THE SKATER

Work by Xavier Veilhan

2015

“The Skater” is a monumental work

of Xavier Veilhan ordered especially

by Amore Pacific Museum,

for an installation close to Seoul

in South Korea.

More than 2 years studies and have

been necessary to complete this

sculpture with multiple technical

and logistic challenges.

This project was the subject of a

continued collaboration with Korean

experts in order to take into account

the specific local constraints,

in particular the wind and seismicity.

For this monumental part, we created

an exclusive Internet site in order to

offer to the final client the possibility

of following, week after week, the

projection of this unusual

manufacturing.

in 73 painted and varnished

aluminium sections.

Dismountable internal framework

We sent a team in Korea in March

during one week in order to assure the

assembly of this Skater in collaboration
