“Tige & vertige”
” A meeting with the material without tools, being unarmed in front of this already dead nature, already fossilized tree trunks. I gathered it in the forest of Rieussec de Pardahian in the south of france, to bring them to my atelier in Sète. I worked there for months, with the simple strength of my arms. I breathed again, felt the growing essence of this material in me. This death that makes us breathe, that we looted sins years.
“Tige & Vertige” this sculpture in wood becomes fallacious and vaginal, an underground structure like bons. The man who stands proud, the bullfighting femine, growing. It is a complex slit that humans still have in these trips. But forget its essence, the nature that unites us.”
