The Subtle Stones – Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Ether – natural stones installation
(sandstone, onyx, red travertine, white carrara, rock crystal), in collaboration with Eggermont Natuursteen in connection with the large scale horizontal Subtle Energy, Dry Pastel


“The sculptures in stones of different textures are above all the repositories of a time of origins, suspended, both immemorial and present, made possible by contemplation alone. If the stones have a form, they first have a history that presides over it and the reverie on the origin affirms that the rock does not lack time, and that it is the living witness of the world since its beginnings. It is in the artist’s vocabulary that the possibility of expressing the mineral world in all its diversity is born, that the world can be named anew, and perhaps also that of another way of apprehending it. It is a question of considering a present state of matter and proposing a superposition of periods and forms. Sandstone, red travertine, white marble, onyx, rock crystal… This enumeration of the elements used, their differences and their intrinsic qualities, allows us to approach the abundance of the mineral world and the symbolic charge of the forms which are proposed to us.”

“Five lines of different stones of similar geometry are laid out on the floor like figures of an elementary flow, from the earth to the ether, they are the necessary steps for the emergence of an inner experience that seeks to transcend matter to grasp its spiritual resonances, a “breath of the soul” that would allow, beyond simple observation, the passage to a more harmonious state of the universe. Drawings and pastels on the walls echo the sculptures and the delicacy of the colours both prolongs and sublimates the fragile density of the rocks.”
