Artwork n°2 : Public Bench

Artist : Lilian Bourgeat

 

 

Lilian Bourgeat, a master of scale, transforms our perception of space by enlarging everyday objects. For Les Extatiques, this artist sets up a 5-meter-long bench, upsetting its usual function and our senses. Through this destabilizing experience, human domination of spaces is placed under the microscope: what is the place of mankind when we become like insects before our own creations?
