Alice through th looking glass by steelfencing Alice through th looking glass by steelfencing
Sorry... description is in french

Cette sculpture fait référence au titre de la suite du conte Alice au pays des merveilles (1865) et qui s’intitule De l’autre côté du miroir (1872), un conte de Lewis Carroll dans lequel Alice entre dans un monde féerique en traversant un miroir. Dans ce monde, tout est à l’envers; la gauche est à droite et le noir est blanc. C’est dans ce même esprit que nous disons que la vie est en dehors et la mort est en dedans. Voilà pourquoi, ce n’est pas Alice mais bien la Mort qui vient nous rejoindre en passant par le miroir. Car tel est son droit, ou plutôt sa mission dans la création.

Alice through the looking glass
Acier et aluminium, 2000

There is a church in eastern Europe somewhere that is completely decorated with human bones... victims of an epademic in the 16th century if I recall correctly. This is what your work reminds me of.

Face à ce grand Miroir
Le corps sans vie
Flottait calmement...

Sa silhouette tournoyante
Eclairée par quelques bougies
Déposées ici comme pour accueillir la Mort
Reflétait la peur...

Seules la poussière et la cendre
Semblaient être vivantes...
Caressées par un léger vent
Elles dansaient autour de la Mort...

Les Yeux du corps brillaient
Des larmes coulaient lentement
De cet abîme de chair et de sang
Refusé par un esprit différent
De celui des autres hommes...

La vie sur cette terre
Etait un tourment d'agonies...
L'esprit différent choisit alors
Un autre monde,
Que celui des hommes
Une autre voie,
Que celle de la foi...

Ce gestalt de peur
Et de Chagrin
Etait la preuve
Que la vie venait
Une nouvelle fois
D'être défiée...

L'envers du miroir sera
Peut-être une délivrance
Ou bien ne sera que Malveillance...

has a good death? Transverse universe?
I try to comprehend as much as I can.
This fucking rocks. I mean did you do it with glass and wrought iron?
Whew. I can't imagine the time it took.

the mirror is cast aluminium that I have polish so it reflect like a glass mirror... the rest is forged steel

This sculpture is based on the Alice through the looking glass faery tale... but instead of Alice going through the mirror to wounderland, it's death that crosses from wounderland to our world through the mirror...
