Le Gentil Garçon


1%, 2010
École élémentaire du groupe scolaire Mélizan-Fiolle-Puget, Marseille

This smiling sculpture pays homage to a treasure from the artist's childhood, a glass prism whose optical properties fascinated him. She is perhaps, by extension, an animist monument to all imaginary friends. Prisma was designed for an elementary school in Marseille, as part of the artistic 1% for the restructuring of the school group Mélizan-Fiolle-Puget, with the complicity of the Office of Projects and the know-how of Art Project.
Prisma is accompanied by a second work, Totologie #2, produced for the kindergarten playground.
