“How the Cirva centre came into my life. In my wanderings in the streets of Marseille per coincidence i found myself face to face in this rue de la Joliette with the Cirva. We became friends, and this unbelievable matter fuses the breath of life and its form. This piece is my “First breath”, a naive encounter between me and the form. This glass that goes through so many cycles, it can be hot, liquid, cold or hard, it is malleable to infinity. Facinating, it becomes an element in itself.
The liquid that passes through these cycles, is like everything else a living form, glass is a fixed gaze of this moving form.
