"Revolution," 2010
Steel
26 x 16 x 21' / 8 x 5 x 6.5 m
Collection Art Norac

With its 40 meter path, "Revolution" is comparable to a 5 story staircase. Housed in the Couvent des Jacobins, the sculpture takes its inspiration from spiral stairway. By forming a knot, it deconstructs the symbol of vertical ascension with which it is normally associated. Here the sculpture allows one to enter an infinite cycle of revolutions where everything rises only to descend according to the rhythm of evolutions and transformations. The visitor can climb up the stairway and physically experience the idea of an eternal return, in a time loop where what comes, is similar to what returns.
