Saint Barth | France
"My sculptures are made to blend into the decor of the villas, to become one with them."
There is always this inevitable connection between the swimming pool and the ocean, like a call of nature. The wind blows all year round on St Barth, this small island in the middle of the ocean. In the villas, you can hear the palm leaves waving. The wind protects us from the heat of the sun. Sometimes a gust passes and disturbs the water of the swimming pool by creating small ripples. With my series of divinities, I try to tell these elements, to represent them. There is Tethis, a sea goddess who takes water in her hands. There is Aeolus, the god of the wind who stands proudly in front of the ocean. Calycé, daughter of Aeolus with her hair and her dress in the wind. My sculptures are made of metal, an element that comes from the earth. It finds its natural place among the elements of St Barth. I try to combine the elegance of polished metal and the grace of divinities with the refinement of villas. My sculptures are made to blend into the decor of the villas, to become one with them.
