Invited to design an american fist, Didier Faustino signs the project Chip'N Dale produced with the support of the Fonderie Dacheville-Nicol. Two american fists are linked thanks to a thin membrane made of aluminium and ready to be broke. Those weapons, momentary made without any danger, become the contact point between two bodies. Such as a fragile balance of power, Chip'N Dale symbolizes the perpetual conflicts of the two eponymous squirels created by Disney Studios. Between war and peace, attraction and repulsion, the siamese prothesis shows the opposite feelings between two individual in a sort of "Killing me softly".
