Heim

For the « Heim » exhibition in the Cour Boecklin in Bischheim, Alsace. In Alsatian the word « heim », which means « home », is often found at the end of village names. Heim is a sculpture or a jewelry box. This sculpture has been inspired by the crucible, the tool in which gold or silver are melted, and by my home, my alsatian « heim » : in the old days, half-timbered houses were designed to be dismantled and moved.

Silver, copper, brass, cherry wood, 2013, 8 x 7 x 7,8 cm
