Jean-Bernard Métais: "Valenciennes"

Jean-Bernard Métais: "Valenciennes" | Art Installations, Sculpture, Contemporary Art | Scoop.it

Jean-Bernard Métais: "Valenciennes", 2007, Place d'Armes, Valenciennes

 

To valorize the location of the Place des Armes, Métais designed a light yet stark structure: a giant needle that points to the sky. Aside from its formal function as a monumental landmark, the work also acts upon the square like a "rumor". The structure is filled with thousands of whispering voices, with words of local significance, secrets shared by people of the city and its surroundings. Whether assembled verbatim, at random, or savantly composed into a surrealist litany, this sea of words draws us to it like a visual magnet. But if you approach and press your ear against the column, you can hear hundreds of different voices telling of time and elsewhere, speaking the words of here and now.
