Place de la République 6, Bayonne, France

For this work, that faces the Adour river and it’s at one of the sides of Pont Saint-Esprit, in connection with the past relation that Basques had with whales we worked on the idea of shifting, of transformation and movement.
Here, on a first level, we want then to recall the human act of compressing nature throught exploitation, pollution and physical appropriation of space. The seven whales, at the same time swimming in their element and laying on human ground, are shown in a moment of balance between sinking and floating, between collapsing and moving, between depths and surface, between attraction and repulsion, between dirt and clean, in a delicate and specific instant that shows the emergency, but could still permit to choose the direction.
