Streetree, 2018
Plane tree branches, vines, mimosa trunk, gold leaves, metal and various objects, 240 x 180 x 120 cm.
(Exhibition view: “Sculpter, faire à l’atelier” La criée, Rennes)

The branches of this tree were harvested on the streets of Paris after windy days, and then bolted together like urban grafts. Lost objects, small treasures (single earrings, ceramic shards, bracelets, pieces of paper) are hanging from the branches like berries, fragments of lives.
