This new piece produced for the exhibition carries the taste of risk, the desire to share a creative process with the students of an art school, to get in touch with the city. Taking up Filliou's phrase "art is what makes life more interesting than art", Jan Kopp first sought to create a working situation here. "It is often a question for me, as it is the case here, of inventing devices that produce events whose hazards compose forms. (...) To create a situation, it means not to be alone". Reacting to the strong impression produced by the Garonne, very wide, in the immediate vicinity of the school and cluttered with branches during his first scouting, the artist chose to work from this material to produce a sculpture. The design of this sculpture of branches involved a series of adaptations to the singular shapes of each element, as well as delicate collective operations for their suspension in precarious balance on the bricks.
