Situated on wasteland on the “Ile aux fagots”, three inclined pylons are intertwined with their antennas replaced by rear view mirrors. For her exhibit Vestige, artist Céline Lastennet began with the observation of these large metal pylons that bristle on the edges of our cities. Their immense silhouettes bear witness to the stretching of the landscape, where dreams of progress turn into vertical panoramas which are frightening and fascinating at the same time. For Céline Lastennet, the “Hortillonnages” is an example of the wear and tear on these spaces, where it would be illusory to control the process of tearing things up and burying them. Her work oscillates between elevation and abandonment, a vestige of a future society or sign of a disaster to come. The assembly of antennas here, reverses the landmarks and distorts the usual perception of the space: playing with the reflections of the mirrors, the artist releases her work from the terrestrial anchorage. From high to low, the sky and the ground begin to merge, and the observer is overcome by vertigo before becoming once again the subject of gravity.
