‘(m)ondes de rives’ (‘River’s Look’) is one of his major artworks: A reflection, which shows the land or the city seen by the river. While the river flows through the town, land and nature, the artwork exposes how would the water sees its own surroundings through its eyes as a river. The looks reveal what French philosopher Gaston Bachelard wrote: «It’s the water which sees, the water which dreams, the water which thinks… so the water is the glance of the earth, Its device to look at the time».
A river’s look is always different. Take the eyes of the river that flows through the city and put yourself in the river’s place. Follow the river course, foliage are flashing past and architectural fragments appear. The sky is there above. The landscape gets mixed up, signs are furtive, movements are ineluctable, finally the river’s look arises. You are the water. Its reminiscence, its liquid reflection, deeply impressionist.
‘Keep An Eye Out’
Who are these eyes? Where are they from? What are they staring at?
A few questions, as a tribute to Earth.
Keep An Eye Out, in Diessen and everywhere else…
