With its 40 meters path, Revolution is comparable to a 5 story staircase. Housed in the Couvent des Jacobins, Revolution takes its inspiration from a spiral stairway. By forming a knot, the metal stairway 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.
