Evasion - Letters in polystyrene covered with sand - height : 1,70 m ; width : 1m (by letter) - 2008
Produced with the concourse of Région Languedoc Roussillon
If we were a grain of sand, what prison could lock
us? In a cave protected by sand bars, at Fontenay-le-Comte, for
the exhibition "Vamos a la playa", I imagined the word escape"EVASION".
It was covered by sand, referring to the escape of holidaymakers
on the beach in summer, but also that of a prisoner dreaming of
being a grain of sand slipping through the smallest gaps in his
prison. The letters a little worn recall the remains of the city
disappear with time. Analogous to the hourglass and the passage
of time. EVASION following the sandy rock dedicated to erosion,
also speaks of freedom.
