Dans le cadre de la COP21 – 21e Conférence des Nations unies sur le climat, qui se tiendra à Paris du 30 novembre au 11 décembre 2015, l’artiste Oscar Lloveras réalise une œuvre monumentale, pour le Musée des arts et métiers, Surfaces Tangibles.
A monumental work ...
This work questions the role of man and his relation to the environment. It also looks at the power of natural energies and 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 in an ancient architectural complex.
In response to environmental issues...
To create Tangibles Surfaces, Oscar Lloveras reflects upon 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 set-up over the entrance of the Musée des Arts et Métiers. It will be part of the place, imbuing itself within the architectural space. Both ephemeral and creating tension, the work is both static and moving, and acts as 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.
