View of the exhibition Venir Voir Venir, Mimosa Echard, from July 3rd to 6th 2014, Lafayette Anticipations, Paris
Mimosa Echard’s work, produced in collaboration with Patrick Vindimian, is inspired by her research on tensegrity structures, discovered by Karl Ioganson.
This necessarily inert sculpture rests on mechanical forces. Three elements (brass, steel and galvanised steel) drawn from 9 rue de Plâtre are put under tension to form a shape in a continuum of energy. The work endorses the qualities of traditional sculpture, defined by masse, as well as mobiles.
