Antoine Dorotte - The fairies - 2013
Artistic public commission from Bordeaux Métropole - Lagardette Tram Station - Bassens - Carbon Blanc
This 10-meter-high sculpture surrounds the operating room. She takes up and diverts the design of the high voltage line pylons. Made up of zinc plates engraved by the artist in aquatint, the installation takes on another dimension after dark. Blue flashes run through the crown, bringing a fantastic character to the whole. Subjected to bad weather and oxidation, its color and shine are brought to change, constituting a natural patina.
The co-edition with the publishing house Les Requins Marteaux of a comic book by Winshluss stages a fiction around the work Les Fées and accompanies its inauguration.
