Located at the junction of the historic old village and the new neighbourhood, Meynard’s « WORLD » sculpture stands like a landmark between time and space.
Made from a fractal whose matrix is a pattern of human silhouettes, this black & white sphere is 2.80 metres high and sits on a steel cradle, composing an architecture of human solidarity.
« WORLD » IS A HUGE COMPASS WHOSE ONLY CARDINAL DIRECTION IS MAN
Within the artist’s works, « WORLD » belongs to the Babel series.
Babels were presented in China (Shenzhen, 2008), Turkey (Istanbul, 2009), Italy (Venice, Sermione, 2009) and France (Art Paris at the Grand Palais & Villa Tamaris, 2010).
Three Babels have already been installed in France.
