MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME has been utilised by London-based artist Alex Devereux for his industrial railway installations. Alex's unique use of MDF is leaving audiences scratching their heads for all the right reasons.
Devereux’s particular skill lies in deceiving his audiences into believing his huge industrial railway installations are created from iron and steel. In fact, they’re made from lightweight, long lasting, MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME. The innovative timber panel, from MEDITE SMARTPLY, retains the characteristics of durable MDF with an added guarantee of 50 years’ external use. With a background in theatre and set design, Devereux has been able to transfer the love for his craft from the side of the stage, to the side of the street; thanks to MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME.
Devereux said:"It is my plan to deceive the observer into believing that they are seeing ‘the real thing’, which is in complete contrast to the intentions of the original engineers, as my works have no utilitarian use at all. The discovery of MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME has allowed me to extend the scope of my work, moving from internal environments to external. Whereas before I was working in semi-exposed spaces, such as my piece inspired by, and installed close to, St Pancras train station, I am now able to exploit larger outdoor spaces like the sculpture park in Broomhill, North Devon. It’s something that has to be seen to be truly believed.”
