Art on the street
An peculiar work, a not ordinary approach: to bring elegance and lightness to imposing metal carcasses.
The imagination of the artist has the hill of Amnéville to become place of fashion show for immobile giants.
Here the notion of heritage conservation is central. Badly perceptible by the public, but symbols of epoch crowning steel and concrete, these pylons are kept but transformed to keep trace and memory.
They are completely transformed into beautiful women dressed in illuminated dresses while their siblings are in the medium term led to disappear from the French territory.
Symbols of water, energy, steel.
The pylons become the heart of a monumental sculpture.
A nice surprise that this unusual and attractive beautification of a heritage, sometimes, rightfully, disparaged.

Elena composed with reality by playing on transparency, color and fluidity. And his interpretation of elegance confrere these heavy carcasses incredible lightness. Suddenly, the springs on land métamorphose four imaginary creatures dream coated with light work together to illuminate the horizon, like a rain of stars ...

Who's Who would have thought?
An electricity pylon high voltage can become a artwork. In any case, the bet tried and succeeded on the tourist and spa center of  Amnéville town.
Visitors can discover four towers that symbolize a silhouette. "Source" is the name given to the work of art based on these pylons. Its creation is tantamount to an artist, Elena Paroucheva, whose project was selected by RTE (Manager Network electricity transmission).
