Les chutes du temps presents an installation consisting of about thirty works made of ceramics, stone, plaster, steel and painted wood.
The exhibition reflects on art as a medium for materialising and projecting human intellect throughout time. It deals with the loss of signification of signs, when messages can still be transferred but probably misinterpreted.
Symbols from abstract cave paintings are refound, such as schemas and signs prior to writing -which express social and spiritual codes of life that are now forgotten- giving an account of the understanding of prehistoric human beings in Latin America. In contrast to this distant past, constructive elements abandoned by modernity are reused, such as cobblestones and stones from French castles, intervening their appearance to shape symbolisms of our times.
The sculptures unfold between abstraction and symbols, seeking to evoke possible meanings in unknown languages which may seem familiar.
