Description :

Since the origins of humanity, the presence of the Moon has been surrounded bymysterious and magical meanings, which is very perceptible within certainartistic expressions from ancient Mexico.

Statera

Artist : Claude Millette
Country : Canada
Year of creation : 2015
Materials : Weathering steel
Method : Welding assembly
Description :

In Latin, STATERA means equilibrium. As with a region’s dynamism, the work represents this equilibrium between nature and culture typical to townships and cities.

The work thus expresses this strength through a bearing point taking root in the ground and somehow being thrust in an ascending movement such as this rustling and creativity typical of this area’s people.

In collaboration with : Patenaude et Frères
