Sculpture by Gérald Colomb (France)
presented on 1st July 2017 at Chamblay (France)
Gérald Colomb’s recumbent effigy has agreed to leave the height of its pedestal especially for Back to the Trees, in order to adopt the likeness of a funeral pyre. From Homer’s Patroclus to the ceremonies of Benares, the finely-worked stone defies time and compels us to engage in a mysterious kind of contemplation.
