Satellite, 2011

inox Gymnasium Dabilly Tours 1% artistique

Satellite was created in dialogue with the architecture, the main elements of which are: the oblique wooden plan, the reinforced glass base and the roof terrace.
This is where the three modules made up of convex stainless steel mirrors take place. Each element defines a spherical shape or that refers to the sphere, which can evoke the ball or the balloon, the bubble, the floral universe or that of fiction (strange metallic object). Designated under the name of “satellite” this achievement, by the nature of its materials, absorbs light and surrounding elements, fixed or in motion, to restore them to passers-by. Because of this simple fact, the modules come alive. They trace a trajectory in space and at the same time disturb, like intruders, the landscape and register perfectly there.
