The artist presents here a rarely treated
subject, although absolutely universal: vital necessity and scientific
enigma, sleep plunges the human being in an apparent lethargy, which
questions us on the mysteries of life. The characteristic posture of the
sleeper lying on his side, treated in an organic style, has been pushed
to the limits of abstraction, like a bronze ribbon that unfolds...
it only takes a little imagination for this sleeper to evoke the
bedroom, a beach in summer, a dance performance, but also Arthur
Rimbaud's poem or an archaeological discovery.
What do the arms of
the Sleeper enclose, in his sleep? The hollow world that is drawn there
invites our imagination to open up to softness and love.
