Duos

I wanted more curves and waves. I dreamed of curving the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers to make them livelier, more humane. That is why in works like « Deux Blocs amoureux », or « Transportées », I carved out the encounter of two blocks of stone meeting in an amorous embrace. Within the same notion of the play of attraction, I carried out the series « Duos », in which each sculpture was made up of two shaped and stretched forms, but each one dressed in different and complementary textures, inspired, respectively by nature and modernity.

Most of the sculptures pivot on their base, and can thus underline several of their aspects, according to the light and their own position.
