Les Deux Chênes

Fabrice Hyber, 2018. Staff and glass on glass; charcoal, pastel, oil and watercolour. Various dimensions 

When he entered Beaupassage, Fabrice Hyber was reminded of the trees in the valley where he grew up. He decided to symbolically mould one of its oldest trees, a 300-year-old oak, and to “transplant” it here, in the city. Twice-moulded, the tree has been positioned symmetrically in the tradition of decorative arts, its branches joining above visitors’ heads to form a porch.
