Cool Hunting Video Presents: Richard Dupont

Using military scanning technology, Richard Dupont makes distorted replicas of his own body

For our 99th episode, we visit the Manhattan studio of Richard Dupont who makes arresting figurative work. His sculptures initially caught our eye when they made an appearance in our very first video at Art Basel and now Dupont’s busy with his large-scale installation, “Terminal Stage,” due to open at the Lever House next month. In this video he unmolds one of his distorted replicas of his body that he made using military scans, walking us through his process and some of the ideas that inform his work.
