Double stairway shows a volume of dimensions close to the staircase of the 3rd floor of Crane gallery. This volume is a kind of large soft carcass lying on the ground and held and pulled on one extremity by ropes in height.

 

Consisting of sheets of PU foam (the same number as the steps of stairs), the architectural structure is created by a repetitive and rudimentary system of folding and attaching these sheets of foam to each other. This folding makes it possible to stiffen and impose the deformation required by each sheet of foam to become a kind of stair embryo. The wire and foam fasteners secure, organize the stacking of the steps between them. The foam sheets are thin. The luminous variations make the material opaque or translucent according to the angle of view of the viewer. Its translucency generates a very dense and luminous color.

The elasticity of the material, its fragility to solar radiation (its color will change during exposure), its low economic and symbolic value as well as its physical impotence to maintain itself without assistance strengthens the transitory, ephemeral character of the work.

The constitutive elements (formally geometrical and without any curve), the method of construction and assembly, with a very rational and repetitive base, produce visually a very "natural" body, transforming under the effect of gravity. This body completely exceeds its referential framework and entails in its development an abundance of forms born of the various constraints and forces that act on it.

In the same way, Line-Cross-Point is constituted of five prints of the same molding on nature of a stretched finger. Each print partially modified arises and hangs on another. Aging, work and disease have caused deformation, twist on this finger allowing the elements to bond together.
