This work, within the
Haumont quarry was undertaken immediately after the completion
of Jennevaux, and in stark contrast, was entirely unconstrained
by questions of aesthetics or harmony. Whatever would
appear did so as it must, day by day, and with no pre-established
goal other than to be guided by instinct and the constant
dialogue between thought and matter.
A complicity between the sculptor and the setting itself
evolved, rooted in a form of interrogation, and this became
the defining idea from which work progressed. Each nuance
is important; leading to a constant reappraisal of the
function of th object created (sculpture?).
