‘Le Solitaire’ – A Fantastic Spaghetti Monster by Theo Mercier

Theo Mercier - Le Solitaire

Created in 2010 by the French artist Théo Mercier, Le Solitaire (aka The Loner) is a strange sculpture of a monster made completely of Spaghetti. Standing nearly 10-foot-tall, this mysterious beast is a surreal sight but there’s a great sadness to it too. It’s odd how Mercier can evoke such sympathy from such a strange figure yet behind its simple form there’s an odd sadness and empathy to it too.

Theo Mercier - Le Solitaire

Mercier was born in France in 1984. Originally he studied to be a designer but over the years he’s grown to become a highly regarded sculptor, painter and photographer. Interning with Matthew Barney in 2008, Mercier has gone on to have exhibitions all over the globe with his work entertaining and provoking audiences everywhere.

You can find a wonderful selection of disturbing, funny and beautiful sculptures by Mercier on his website here.

As a side, beside Le Solitaire on Mercier’s website the work includes a translation of a poem by Jerôme Lambert. You can check it out below:

It was winters ago, without malice or grace,
It was winters ago, I still bear the trace,
That a boy changed me from what I was then
A gentle giant, without start and without end.

In the beginning, I thought: he wants the best for me,
This boy seems honest and I like his ways.
But the ways in question quickly went to hell,
And I heard in the distance toll the awful bell.

It cried: “Giant, you must take care
Not to give too much credit to the boy!
He has many talents, his hand is long and thin
But know that his heart is as prickly as a pin.”

I replied: “Shut up, you’re nothing but an old bell
It must be jealousy that is making you yell.”
All the while the child on his little school chair
Sat down my bottom, my head and my hair.

As the child grew, the bigger was my body.
As each day he added a blob to the blobby.
I saw him come in the morning, beaming,
And leave, less courageously, in the evening.

I attained a colossal and magnificent bulk
Higher than the hills that he made out of muck.
I was his most spectacular creature
Even if I was missing a certain feature.

I thought he truly wanted to make me his prize,
When eventually, he gave me two eyes.
Two eyes so sad and beautiful that nothing could say
What was hidden in this blue, twixt the sea and the day.
