Le lieu comme existence : une pratique sculpturale in situ

Abstract : A site is a subject. Its historical and mythological aura makes it active and interactive. The scale of a place is relative to its spectator. Yardstick of the microcosm and macrocosm, it is the scale that provides the place with its dimensional and functional characteristics. My sculpture at Afka is inspired by the history and myths that haunt the place. These myths are perpetuated by collective memory. They linger in the places that gave them birth, and long to materialize through art. Addressing imagination, they can alleviate the anguish of the contemporary human being. My installation at the shrine where the Phoenicians used to celebrate the resurrection of Adonis, transposes to it the procession to Calvary. Each of the sculptures suggests one aspect of the scourge. Golgotha is readapted. The scene of crucifixion is played again for the spectator, as a prelude to the resurrection, Afka hallmark theme.
