Glasses, minerals - 2014
Rock Crystal presents itself as a pyramid composed of glass and multicolored stones. A priori, the materials seem to oppose one another not only because of their intrinsic material properties but also because of their functionality.
Eminently fragile in appearance, the pyramid is symbolic of human attempts to raise oneself up and to move closer to God and reveals the absurdity of such an enterprise.
However, it is by taking a closer look that one can see the supposed dichotomies fade away…the stones provide the edifice with stability and constitute true cornerstones.
Arranged conspicuously according to the chromatic spectrum, the stones indicate that “something is following its course”, that a mysterious order shapes the structure.
