Installation

On the beach, in the extension of the Porte Océane
from 27 May  to 23 September 

The Porte Océane is located at the western end of the tramway of Le Havre facing the seashore. Arranged symmetrically on either side of Avenue Foch the building complex forms a gateway to the sea. It was designed by Auguste Perret and completed in 1956.

Following the central axis of these buildings, a white rectangular construction rises from the beach. 

The 10m-high sculpture emerges like giant clamps etched against the sky and forming a second gate towards the ocean. Monumental yet graceful, gleaming white with no discernible surface structure, the sculpture strikes a delicate balance between familiar object and absurd construction.
