A monumental work of land’art

It was also an opportunity for the young people of the town to wash the sinks, but also to relight the town’s oven to organize a moment of conviviality around a meeting called “Bring your dough” where everyone prepares a dish and shares it. with those present.

Due to its dimensions, the work is integrated into its surroundings

This monumental work, called “Tournis de Tartas”, is made from the same module. It is supposed to be a geometric and abstract representation. She waits for visitors in the town’s Zacatin square.

Due to its dimensions, the work fits into its open environment and is close to the dwellings. It certainly changes their perception by allowing individuals to question the nature of the surrounding buildings, landscape and small heritage.

The gaze is directed first to the work, then to the space that surrounds it. Finally, it gives a different and new look, by proposing a focus on the landscape in the distance or on the other side in the habitat. It also invites us to ask ourselves how to develop and share common spaces in our towns.

The work is volume, but also space, with an exterior of concave shapes and a more complex interior of convex shapes, reminiscent of the diaphragm of the camera. The gaze traverses the sculpture and its helical forms to focus on the landscape in the distance.

Through its interior space, the work also offers a protective play area for children, allowing them to see without being seen. For older children, this may be a possible space for a nap.

Jérôme Leyre’s work forms part of a striving to raise public awareness of the genesis and forms of life, his works question the lines and textures that define our natural space.

His creative approach focuses on his desire to formalize his own questioning of man’s relationship with his environment, his territory of life, the elements that compose it. Simplicity as an end and not as a beginning.
