Métiers d'Art Collection is an exclusive digital artwork collection by Can Büyükberber, created in collaboration with the not-for-profit organisation Literary Arts Foundation. This project marries the creative genius of Can Büyükberber with the celebrated artistry of Montblanc pens.
Büyükberber has conceived of a series of digital works that reflect the aesthetic and mood of Montblanc's renowned limited edition writing instruments. The edition size of the artworks matches the edition sizes of the pens - and one pen from each series will be auctioned on Sedition along with Edition #1 of its related artwork by the end of 2022.
For the Métiers d'Art Collection, Can Büyükberber reimagines the central themes, exquisite materials and use of form employed by the master craftsmen of Montblanc's atelier, and transforms these multidisciplinary artefacts into sculptural digital installations, each surrounded by their own unique atmosphere and architectural “metaverse”.
Michelangelo 96 is an homage to the Renaissance genius Michelangelo. Located in a marble-like walled room, a twisted form circling around David's portrait signifies Michelangelo's twisted sculptures. The form emerging from a sea-like water body, loops in a never-ending cycle as the work unfolds, highlighting the eternality of the technical and creative mastery in Michelangelo's works.
