Moon in the Tree
Moon in the Tree is a sculpture that invites people to sit down and socialise. Through the work, the artist duo Martine Feipel and Jean Bechameil encourage new forms of conviviality and a more poetic vision of everyday life.
Inspired by the ideology and geometry of modernist movements, Moon in the Tree uses a vocabulary where each branch offers a different figure in a grammar of forms determined by geometric abstraction. By bringing modernist systems in contact with the unpredictable configurations of public space, the work occupies an ambiguous status between sculpture and furniture – between utopia and functionality.
