Ever since the beginning of culture, art and nature have been connected through a complex relationship of successive imitations; a cascade of reproduction that leaves us unable to discern the origin, if indeed there is one to discern. Through twelve settings succeeding one another from left to right, like when reading, a white sculptural element passes through natural settings: a forest, a beach, or industrial locations where nature has been totally erased by the work of humans. The beginning of this journey, which ultimately turns back on itself, is the home: originally, four walls precariously built. And although its function is to separate the human being from the environment, it at once takes its formal inspiration from the latter.
