|HuGo MoToR Mes travaux dans le cadre du 1% artistique L’œuvre murale à Vaumoise 2003|
A concrete wall, engraved by casting, for the courtyard of a country school.
Mr. Michel-Antoine Bourdon, Poet and Architect, proposes to me, at the end of 2002, an artistic intervention, correlative to the renovation and the extension of the school of Vaumoise, of which he is the architect. The Mayor and his municipal team came to my workshop at Blanc Mesnil. I presented them my project with the support of a painted cardboard model.
Very soon after, we signed a contract under the 1% artistic law.
Each of the 100 children of the school chooses from my archives the drawing of one of my 1024 figures, which I pour in the concrete. By this gesture I register the presence of each pupil in the symbolism of the work.
