The 3 graces

„The 3 graces“ is a commissioned work for the city of La Voulte sur Rhone within the art show „Sentier du Rhône“ taking place every year from June to September. My 3 graces are enormous poppies in the middle of a roundabout. When arriving by car from outside of the town, the large flowers appear as a mirage, since they are visible from quite a distance. So, they are perceived outside of familiar dimensions and our visual habits. Approaching the roundabout, the fraud becomes evident and the square on the roundabout gets an unusual importance. One would like to stop and get out off the car to walk under the flowers…
