“To introduce the movement is to create life”
The question of movement has always been an integral part of Philippe HIQUILY’s work. At the end of the 1950s, he created the mobiles and the fountains. In 1963 he made a trio of monumental 12-meter weathervanes installed on Elviria beach (Marbella, Spain) that he reinterpreted more than 30 years later to carry out a monumental project for the Universal Exhibition 2010 in Shanghai. Faced with the success of this work, the artist conceived the following year a series of weathervanes including the Winter Weathervane which will be made at a height of 5 meters.
Faced with these mobiles, our relationship to sculpture is completely upset. The aesthetic experience is no longer lived only through contemplation, but through participation. The artist invites us to play with the work, thumbing his nose at the instructions “do not touch” instituted in cultural circles.
By integrating the Art For All collection alongside the Marathoner and the Epicurean, this Weathervane comes in an accessible format of 18 cm high while retaining the poetry and magic of its monumental equivalent and, more than ever, the playful essence.
