Prisons de Lyon

Les ballons prisonniers | Ateliers MilleFeuilles, Nantes 2015 | 2015

This installation joins and combines footballs salvaged in prison, unique round and playful shapes abandoned in this prison environment. These balls, objects of bond and games worn out by the inmates’ kicks, remain here as relics, concentrates of humanity, life spheres. Set up on adjusted globe supports, the Dodge balls find themselves fixed on a pedestal, and make us think about the world and the idea of a journey.
