Does the act of blowing an entire production into another production, within another technical context exemplify the act of erasing something to better reveal it? François Daireaux collected 404 toras (rings of around 200 glass bangles strung together) in various colours, from the village of Firozabad, India. In addition to the Blow Bangles installation, made up of 404 “imprints” of these toras, re-melted and blown in a selection of 404 historic moulds conserved at Meisenthal, small series have been edited.
