Becoming water once again



Like sap that runs through the body, Water digs into stone, the carrier of life.

A reflection on water and man, which takes us right back to the origins of life, to remind us of what we are made of. A work to free water from the yoke of technology and from the thousand artefacts that determine its performance, witnesses to the blind human ambition to dominate the elements. An action taken to recover the primordial value of water, to stir the consciences and return the daily ritual of cleansing to its ancestral value.

Because water is pleasure and fear, enemy and friend, it is boundary and infinity, it is change and timelessness, memory and oblivion, it is music and poetry. Beginning and end.

Traditional tap disappear integrated into a pure, silent shape. Its function becomes abstract, intangible, succumbing to the force of matter and the washbasin, carved into the rock, becomes an ancestral source. A mighty stone column firmly anchored to the ground refers to the archetype of the baptismal font. An abstract, sculptural form in which the echo of our existence reverberates.
