Sabbath

sculpted hammers
variables dimensions, 2017

The hammer accompanies the work, let it be expert or tinkered. Its mass can also well construct than destroy. For Sabbat, the hammers are held on their heads, give an image of rest, of truce – propitious moment to the gathering of forces, to nocturnal exchanges.
Their figures disturbed by curves try to blur our eyes. Of this round seem to escape rumors of a dance or an uprising.
