Catalogue Note

QUOTE

FR:

Aiguës, déchiquetées, les formes retrouvent un peu celles des Mariales et des milliers d’oiseaux blancs semblent battre des ailes dans l’atelier soudain trop petit.

ENG:

The sharp, torn shapes are reminiscent of those in Mariales and thousands of white birds seem to start flapping their wings in the studio, which suddenly becomes too small.
