Florent Theron

MEMENTO / Spot 01 - Stade du Ray / GALERIE

 
Well today, the duo is back and here to stay with "MEMENTO", a new project again with a focus on location, just of the decaying type this time around. Indeed, for this reoccurring column of theirs from now on, Florent and Fred will be coloring not just spaces still in use via the addition of external components, but mostly very specific corners sharing the common denominator of being incongruous per se, be it due to their construction or their current, more or less obsolete or disused state, and without the need of any big tweak.

"Polygone" / Florent Theron / GALLERY

Consciousness of the urban space has to be a hot topic this day: amongst many other things, LIVE has told you about the Bordeaux, France-based project "PLAY" before and, recently, Ocean Howell even reconciled with his first love long enough for a few talks at the recent Pushing Boarders in Malmö (as well as a three-sixty kickflip).

If the fruit of such considerations is only now blooming here and there throughout the surface of the globe in apparently a rather simultaneous manner, that's only because it's been nurtured underground by the skateboarders' perpetual frustration regarding the inadequacies of the established society with the reality of their practice of choice - for a long, long time.

In Nice, France, Florent Theron has been working on "Polygone" for over a year already; a personal project that he eventually materialized in fanzine form, for the lack of an additional, better-suited dimension. Oddly enough, despite both projects being completely disconnected at the root, Florent's interpretation of the skatable structure shares sensibilities with Leo and Nicolas' take on the subject with "PLAY": the obstacle is summarized to its most basic geometrical shape (in this case, three triangles), and primary colors that inspire a Mondrianesque cognitive deciphering.

Images aplenty were captured by Fred Schwal, and then laid out on paper by Florent himself, strong of his Le Huit experience as he is. Let's hand him the mic for a sec.

Jusqu'à la mort!

After Nyjah's new opus, yesterday, we knew you would need something to help you get back to reality, one where spots are very hard to skate, and not necessarily with drones surrounding them… You're in luck, the Demain skate co heads just put out news from Marseille, and what they have to show surely does look a lot like wherever you are!

Léo's tip: Demain skateco!

If there is something like experts on Marseille skateboarding, M'sieur Loden is amongst them, and if he tells you some of the new kids deserve some shine, what do you say?

Your Sunday surprise!

Wait, a four days old part!? Let's be frank, we can be a bit slow, here at Live, but mainly, mainly, it would be a shame to actually miss out on Florent Theron, and his super varied and tonic skating. Plus, he's got a fairly nice frontside pop shove-it!
