“An artistic creation achieves, at best, an idea. But tackling large-scale works means working outdoors, in contact with the public, with other people. A piece should generate something outside of itself, and Vendôme is a square that can interrupt flows and the way people see things. The pipe is therefore a type of optical system…. A work is a powerful means of resistance at this present time. A sculpture can be like a hole in the world and an opening towards another reality.” — Oscar Tuazon*
Tuazon’s colonne d’eau installation—part of the HORS LES MURS program at FIAC 2017—can be seen in the center of Paris through the end of October, 2017.OSCAR TUAZON—FIAC: HORS LE MURS, through Wednesday, November 1.PLACE VENDÔME, Paris...See Éric Troncy, “Who is Oscar Tuazon… ,” Numero, October 18, 2017:.*“Oscar Tuazon or the Necessity of Sculpture,” AMA, October 2, 2017:
