These two works, made especially for Unleashing, are part of The Carriers, a series of sewn plasticized urban silhouettes of people. The figures were photographed on the street by Allié or were inspired by found images that Allié manipulates or re-enacts. The bodies of the figures merge with their surrounding and with the objects  they carry, bordering on abstraction. Allié transforms these urban characters that are a part of our daily life into new entities weighed down by their load, but who also bear possible new narratives.
