Each sculpture projects its own identity, its own force, its ownindividuality, but seen among the others, each blends into the whole.
Collectively the pieces generate a vital energy, the energy of numbers.
The shadows of the pieces interact with one another, passing from light to shade like each individual in society.
This contrast of black and white presents each piece in starkopposition to the whole, providing a sense of perspective, sowe can focus on the difference, the minority.
Is the minority piece not sometimes the elite, sometimes the excluded ?
It is when we stand back that we understand the harmony and balance of the dyptich as a whole.
A closer viewpoint emphasises individuality at the expense of a certain balance.
The further away we are, the greater the harmony of the piece.
The void accentuates absence, silence and the unknown.
It has its place in the balance of the dyptich.
It is the antithesis of power and difference.
Each sculpture occupies a significant place among the whole.
Each black piece has this same title « White », and each white one is entitled « Black », but in a different language to signifytheir universal character.
The sculptures are made of clay, creative earth, mouldeddirectly by hand, and each is vital in its immediacy.
