The Art of Mikael Alacoque

Mikael Alacoque

Fascinated by the idea of the public monument much of Mikael's
work revolves around a need to investigate the way in which society
records events and people by casting them in metal and stone.

See these & other recent works; all part of a series of sculptures concerned with a playfully sinister bastardization of familiar objects. The pieces have an initial feeling of innocence and irreverence but on closer inspection seem more bizarre and unsettling. See more here.
