La Vie Héroïque de B.S. - Acte III : Les sirènes de Corinthe, 2015


Having definitively lost his modern certainties on the use and origin of forms, B.S. embarks on a journey to Greece to understand the conditions of appearance and conceptualization of the very first manufactured form : the Doric column. How in this arid region, only filled with stones and dust, Man could have conceptualized a form as pure ?
Wandering in the desert landscapes, B.S. becomes mad and mystic. He finally abandoned the technical and precise tools of engineering and industrial production and starts working only with what he can find on the spot. Desperately throwing himself in the experience of the sculpture, he thinks that in that context a transcendental and universal truth on any form will appear to him.
