Expo Ecofuturiste: My Engine - Jean-Noël Fessy

Alongside this sculpture, by the French artist, Jean-Noël Fessy, is a sign that says: 'Apricot branches and vines, bound and oiled. An engine, that could have been mine, on a wooden base.'

'The tool, the fire, the engine. Main steps in man's story of power taking over his Mother Earth. A might that is today overflowing her limits. It can leave you thoughtful - pensive' - Jean-Noël Fessy.

Modern art often is quite mysterious to me...I need to improve! I think this strange pink birdy is my favorite!

A bit like Rodin's "Thinker". I rather like the 'musculature' of the vines. It's quite easy to imagine a bundle of apricot vines under our skins.
