LA BOÎTE. La Boîte (The Box) is a materially constructive type of creative project. It consists in an assemblage made up of a varied series of heads carved out of recycled wood that are joined together to produce different chromatic and textural qualities. There is a world full of hidden stories inside the heads (Boîtes), produced by using other materials that converse with each piece and require an active audience that interacts with them to then discover these tiny representations of reality.
