Bella Hunt & DDC French-American

Overview

Bella Hunt & Ddc is a duo of French-American sculptors from Provence. Bella Hunt & Ddc's work draws on pre-industrial craftsmanship and an economy of resources. The duo's sculptures and ceramics are historical fantasies and uchronies, rooted in the ancient and medieval Mediterranean world, and in popular culture, from fantasy to car tuning, while avoiding any penchant for classical purity.

Bella Hunt & Ddc look more to the Mycenaean, Minoan, Hittite, Etruscan, or early medieval worlds, drawing inspiration from the forms and motifs of eras and civilisations often overlooked by the general public. Using ancient techniques and processes (stucco-lime, ceramics...), the duo focuses on a practice of creation around objects such as vases, benches, fountains, and a fantastic figurative statuary, with organic accents.
