This proposition reveals a progressive momentum in time and space. It is inspired by the idea of ​​nature, its cycle and its astonishing balance. The sculpture islands unfold all the way up with a play of tangled shapes which creates a rhythm, a gentle, disordered, but coherent growth. These organic shapes and colors refer to those of the winter horsetail which grows in colonies, like a collective force and which persists through the different seasons with delicacy and serenity.
