The "Renaclerican"is a door. A process of unity and tearing apart... and flying...
Took part in the exibition Birdinvest- Leprojet Fou et Genereux instigated by the Belgian sculptor Jo Dilo. This aimed at promoting conciousness about the use of pesticides.
The mirrors that cover the birdshouse aim at making it dicreet, reflecting leaves and branches in its surroundings. However, when you come closer, it's your own image it reflects.
Are we then intruders, or was there something that called us?
The birdshouse is a refuge. Its charred roof and cracked witnesses violence, as if a fire has taken place. An accident or a desire to harm this microsanctuary?
It is dark in there. Who's hiding?
Hard to say. Alone and deep inside a pair of eyes shine with a dull glow, shifting intensity as a gust of wind in the trees, a cloud, creates light change. Those eyes don't seem to want anything. They just are there...
Around fly the butterflies.
The sculpture was a reflection on our use of pesticides and our risponsibility on the fine balance in our environment as well as what is dearest to us, our childrens innocence.
