    Arnold Goron: Molecular Structures

Sculpture: See the fruits of sculptor Arnold Goron's long term collaboration with Isabel Marant

Posted by Maisie Skidmore,

Window dressers often go unnoticed, don’t you think? Involved in their own unique brand of set design, they create micro-universes designed both to frame and to contextualise a fashion designer or retail outlet’s vision, and yet unless they’re dressing the enormous storefronts of Louis Vuitton or transforming Selfridges into a submarine they rarely get the credit they deserve.

Arnold Goron is one such artist. The French ceramicist and sculptor has been working in collaboration with Isabel Marant since he built her three enormous porcelain birds back in 2009, and his creations for the windows of her stores worldwide ever since have been no less impressive. From a giant molecular structure so light-seeming that it appears to float in the air, to a huge wall built out of aluminium trays which recreates the toughness of armour, Arnold and Isabel epitomise the idea of the ideal artistic collaboration, fusing two different art-forms into one brilliantly unified vision.
