“Temps Sauvages et Incertains” appears like a spider trying to take root. The metallic and simplified animal tries to fix its three legs. The tension at the point of contact with the ground reveals the instability of fear.
The extreme, yet simple cold steel line wrapping itself in a natural tripod recalls technology and the industry of modernity but there is nothing functional about it. The steel tube frame seems uncomfortable as the undulations attract the bodies to a possible encounter. Bodies can take their place in this new kind of furniture and choose between three ways of sitting.
The simple line seems to make sense in the way it feels the void, and the body experiences the tension of wild and uncertain time.
