• The Lodge

    Ekalogic by Eka Acosta

It is the light that magnifies the work of Eka Acosta, Argentino-Swedish artist. The light that gently
penetrates the lodge seduced Eka and gave him the idea to create works specifically for this place.
The lighting of this lodge is made to magnify these sculptures and give life to the occupants of the
room, who are also the inhabitants of this forest.
Deer and woodcock. Two beautiful animals. The colours of the interior of the lodge are inspired by
their fur and their plumage. Colours of the deep forest. Even if EKA’s ones take on the colour of love:
red. You may also sometimes encounter a pink pig…

Interview

Eka Acosta

Sculptor

Tell us what motivated you to join this project, how did you draw inspiration from the space and the nature around it ?

“Ah la la”, it’s a long and beautiful story. A story of respect, admiration and friendship. I met Anne- Caroline a long time ago, at a complicated time in my life. She then opened the doors of her artists' residence to me and I spent several months here in Touraine, at her home, carving mesh and giving life to many animals who found a second life at her friend’s collections. Since then I’ve been back on my way and moved to Stockholm, but we’ve always been in touch. We have great respect for each other and a certain complicity. So I logically wanted to be one of the artists who gave shape to this beautiful ecological project and Eco-responsible, Ekalogic?

and how did you choose the works that inhabit the lodge that bears your signature ?

Logically, I chose the animals from this Duporterie forest. Deer and woodcock.

Biography

A rope "twister" who has no one like him to grasp the animal in movement

Eka Acosta, born in Paris in 1970, grew up in Buenos Aires. After working in design and interior
design in Argentina and Paraguay, he decided to devote himself to Art and went to study in Europe.
His journey takes him to Stockholm where he has been living for ten years and his passion for
sculpture leads him to discover what will be henceforth its preferred technique: metal mesh
modelling. From London to Paris to Stockholm, Eka Acosta’s reputation is well established. His subtle
observation of animals, his patient dexterity and his solid experience as an iron wire twister are the
secrets of his talent. He has no equal to grasp the animal in the movement that is natural to him. To
the elegance, the charm or the strangeness of its subjects is added the fascinating transparency of its
life-size sculptures, as if we were contemplating them from several sides at the same time. A good
way to encourage us to do and redo things. Jean Ploteau
