Chantier public #2
For Chantier public #2, Nicholas Milhé presents a sculpture at Place Hoche in Rennes. This sculpture is a prefabricated architectural model which allows for swift construction of a wall. By choosing to place this element alone and without its original functionality, Milhé has created a minimalist sculpture which, nevertheless, carries symbolic and political undertones.
