"Waves & Fishes" The installation, has been conceived for this specific location and adjusted to the actual room. It is a second installation of the project "Waves and Fishes” that had already a first realization in 2011 at the Castle in Excideuil, France. It is issued from my belief that beauty of life in waters is threatened by pollution and excessive exploitation. As this piece of conceptual art is part of the same project it includes the main modules building the first installation at the “Moulin de la Baysse” the large black sisal-net, white paper fish-like sculptures, and waving shapes carved out of poured rough sea salt. My materials, as in all my artworks, are chosen for their duality, light and heavy, pellucid and opaque, in movement or stillness. My thoughts were born during my stay in Iceland. In this Installation I recall the bind between hell and heaven I saw in geysers and volcanoes, in the beauty of the nature and the harsh precariousness of life. In this installation a fountain of anxious fishes, in virginal white, are escaping their death in a black net, and are bursting out like a huge cloud.

Born in 1949 San Sebastian, Spain, lives in Netherlands and France - Large Conceptual Installations - New projects each year - Light & heavy materials - Unconventional techniques developing works passing over the borders of sculpture and painting - Project books with special layouts - Active in many countries. My esthetic standpoint is based on the duality between life and death. Therefore in each of my projects I choose materials out of two types, either light translucent or heavy opaque ones. Among the first ones are light textile materials, as gauze, rice paper, tracing paper, organza, the second type includes lead, sea salt, wood, charcoal, porcelain and stone. I have developed my projects in the numerous places where I lived; they reflect my nourishment with the local cultures as well as the spiritual significance of the installation site. Six or seven process steps make up every project: from identifying the concept and suitable installations spaces, through the transformation of poor materials into poetic objects, to the final design and the production of books about the realization of the art work.
