Vivifying

plaster, wood, crystal and breath
2020
The sculptures are dedicated to the mutual interpenetration of the natural ecosystem of the Cognac (FR) vineyards. In particular to five of its main actors: the common hare, the thrush, the hoverfly, the bat and the orchid anthropohor. The breath of each being is contained in the hand-blown crystal domes that fade into different tones of cognac.
Flora and fauna are the protagonists in the bases where they blend with decorative elements in the Louis XV style, a reference to the century in which Richard Hennessy started the production of cognac in 1765.
