The joy, nothing else



After the show of MADELEINE FONDANTE* (bronze covered with fine gold) with MOUVEMENTS DE DANSE! by Auguste Rodin in a museum, the exhibition of COLLERETTE MI-PLISSÉE* (pongé of silk with an innovative plissé), PLANET YB 223 (ultra high-performance fiber-concrete) and PLANET WG 111 (ultra high-performance fiber-concrete) for "THE JOY, NOTHING ELSE" curated by the art historian Paul Ardenne.


"This exhibition starts from a laudable intention in these difficult times: to expose the joy that today’s artists can give it to see, draw a figure. The joy that is happiness, of course, but not only. There is also the joy of beauty, the joy that lavishes good health in our bodies, the mudita, again, that benevolent joy that makes us feel happy about the happiness of others, without forgetting the evil joy, the Schadenfreude, which incites to laugh under the cloak of the misfortune of our fellows"

COLLERETTE MI-PLISSÉE* (HALF-PLEATED RUFFLE in English) seems alive… A silk jellyfish crawling?
This artwork was imagined to maximize its play with the light depending on the body or surface that carries it.

A silk manufacturer of Lyon made in an ancestral way a golden yellow pongé.
Then, one of the rare companies that still masters the technique of «pleating» was able to meet the challenge of folding the fabric but only on half of the textile.

Ancestral & innovation gave birth to this sculpture of silk and of light.
