Teenager, I played a game named "The Taquin". This play consite to be given in the order of the numbers. These figures are registered on 15 pawns on a plate of 16 boxes.versions :
In 1891, in the United States, a man called Sam Loyd stated himself to be the inventor for it.
I thus had the idea to transpose this idea in sculpture. My process was initially "mathematical". Each part has to enter a parallelepiped, not to block itself between them. Only one part could cover the others, not two ! Thus the foliage of the tree is the only pawns witch is being able to cover more than one part...
And the subject was set up... Instead of 16 parts (4x4), I preferred 12 (4x3). A man and a woman tease themselves nicely. They are lying along a stock of a tree. The provision of their bodies takes the squaring of the play into account .
... and once completed combination, we can "close again" the framework.
