Event (durational sculpture): Friche du Palais de Tokyo, Paris   (and then at Halles de la Fonderie, Geneva, Switzerland)

Duration: 12 hours  |  Dimensions: 80 metres  |  Height of cable: 3.5 metres  |  Materials: 800 sparklers, 1.5mm cable

A “spark” is kept alight for more than 12 hours, over two consecutive days, of a two day exhibition. From nightfall until midnight, the spark traces a slow, gradual, uninterrupted trajectory across the expansive fallow space. As the spark waltzes forth, its incandescent direction eventually delineates a single drawn line. The fleeting, ephemeral nature of a tiny spark becomes prolonged, sustained - its essence of ‘being’ reconsidered.
