my work I search for a connection between art and environment, I try to
give another look to the visual aspect of our environment and I propose
view of our landscape and our cities. The artworks and studies
weak points, where urban constructions and networks of energy
distribution are poorly received by the
people - roundabouts, public spaces, fountains, stadiums, bridges,
highways, parking lots…
idea is its transformation into works of art, symbolically
maintaining the basic module and incorporating it in carrying out my
"sculptures – electric pylons, "sculptures -
antennas", "sculptures - wind energy towers", "sculptures -
lighting”, "sculptures - gateways" ...
I want to highlight rather than conceal
them, after all they are "dolmens" of our time.
Two ways of research are
- This solution treats the
transformation of existing building in the environment:
- High voltage power lines
- Renewable energy
Relay - Antennas
- Lighting – highways, stadiums, public spaces, etc.
They are investigated according
to reception area and allow the modification of the visual aspect of
infrastructure into artistic works.
An example of such a
transformation is the artwork "Source", built in alliance with RTE
the tourist and thermal city Amnéville les Thermes.
Tension Sculptures" - This way explores new forms
for pylons to be implanted in the landscape, urban and rural areas.
Sculptures use "symbolically" the
same modules of metallic construction.
The men have spread in their path man made
constructions but unwanted – Pylons,
lighting poles, antennas, bridges, towers. My artistic approach in the
environment is inspired by the visible and the invisible (the pylon,
is visible, but the energy that goes through the cables is invisible;
antennas are visible, but radio waves are invisible.
• My inspiration comes from a share of the mystical and
invisible phenomenon of
energy (power, speed, its sources, its tension, its paths). But also
that emerged from the waves and its vibrations that communicate to us.
invisible world which vibrates in the air is very attractive to me,
is in another dimension. The artist is totally free to her
• On the other hand, my inspiration comes from the visible
buildings. Just look carefully at the landscape through a high voltage
cuts the sky in small geometrical dimensions by the intersection of
lines, vertical and diagonal conferred the structure. They create a
between "full and empty" on the merits of the sky ...
From this inspiration, I chose the name of "High Tension" for my
sculptures and my installations and "Electric Art" of my artistic path.
The elements entering "games" in the
spirit of the work are sensors, diodes, insulators, rotors, antennas,
... In the first stage of creation, I must forget that the buildings
"giants" and not think about the technical, climatic, electrical,
mechanical constraints…giving free rein to the imagination.
The first ideas:
adventure of High Tension began for me a long
time ago, first with the observation of the landscape, often marred by
of useful construction, but not
always aesthetic. I watched the huge electricity towers in the fields
imagined walking giants, transforming themself, illuminated. Sometimes
were cats, dancers, men who walked ... at other times completely
appeared to me.
What was the click?
It came when I readied in the press
that the disappearance of the towers was scheduled for 2035
in France, following the passage of the underground electricity network. Then there was
the decision to try to intervene on this landscape in
my own way, even to prevent its disappearance and keep a few towers as
of our time. My ideas were turned into drawings, models, photographs,
studies and projects.
idea to the realization of a
"High - tension" artwork:
My work is based on five axes of reflection:
