French artist Jérémy Laffon uses chewing gum sticks to create precarious structures and installations. Whether placing the gum in the style of a house of cards, or stacking them in spiraling columns, or creating a parquet pattern with them in a floor installation, Laffon’s pieces have an unstable and ephemeral quality that the artist plays up at times, forcing collapse by bending or heating the sticks, ultimately swinging into a different dimension.

Laffon’s work is being shown at the Association Limousin Art Contemporain in Limoges (his hometown) through March 23, 2013.
