As part of the COP21 - 21th UN Climate Conference, to be held in Paris from November 30 to December 11, 2015, Oscar Lloveras achieves a monumental work for the Musée des Arts et Métiers, Tangibles Surfaces.
A monumental work ...
This work is in the tradition of the artistic approach of the artist, questioning the man and his place in the environment, the power of natural energies, the notion of temporality. His spatial works, sometimes installed in nature, sometimes in the city, raise many issues related to urban planning and to the harmony of spaces. The Tangibles Surfaces installation inside the Conservatoire national des arts et métiers represents a new opportunity in the integration of contemporary work Lloveras in an ancient architectural complex.
In response to environmental issues...
To create Tangibles Surfaces, Oscar Lloveras based its reflection on the museum collections and the architecture of this historic site associated with the environmental issue raised by the COP21. Composed of solids and voids, the work will be deployed over the entrance forecourt of the Musée des Arts et Métiers. It will be part of the place, imbuing themselves of architectural space, integrating in his heart and interacting with him. Between floating and tension, the work of both static and moving is an invitation to travel and dream. It also carries with it the challenges related to sustainability, the choice and the use of resources - recurring problems in the artist's life.

Tangible surfaces welcome visitors for three months.
