An embodiment this time anchored in time

during the first containment, Nacle had already represented the Archangel Michel in a graff. A work that was intended to be covered. A whole symbol, the tag was thus ephemeral, as the pandemic had to be. Faster he disappeared, the faster the health crisis had to end. But this time, the realization is eternal.

"On the one hand because the situation we live is not ephemeral, contrary to what we could have thought last year. And more for a duty of memory, and that we have remember in some time, "explains the artist.

The virus has its curious butterfly effect. That of rendering eternal works intended not to last. To ward off the pandemic or at least not forget it, the open-air museum is non-stop and it's free.
