COMMISSION: MOSAIC DISPLAY MOUNTED ONTO A 19 METERS CURVED WALL

A COMMISSION THAT DID NOT SURVIVE...

Local children and youths were invited to create individual mosaics
as well as helping on site with the process of mounting their artworks onto wall

Although a good relationship was shared on site and during the workshops, an unpredictable
nocturnal behaviour and pattern appeared as soon as the 'ceramic mounting' phase began. ...
After every single session on site, once alone, the children would stone the wall and work.
This went on, systematically, for several weeks.
