Revolution   [2010]
Steel
8 x 5 x 6.5 m
Collection Art Norac, Rennes, France

With its 40 meter path, Revolution is comparable in length to a 5 story staircase. Housed in the Couvent des Jacobins, the sculpture 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, one enters an infinite cycle of revolutions where everything rises only to descend according to the rhythm of evolution and transformation. The visitor can climb up the stairway, physically experiencing the idea of an eternal return, existing in a time loop where what comes is similar to what returns.
