Nomade ~ Jaume Plensa, Antibes

    Newer Older

    This sculpture is the work of Catalan born sculpture Jaume Plensa, entitled Nomade. It is 8 metres high and is made with 6 tons of steel and sits in the famous city Ramparts in Antibes.

    Plensa sees it as an open piece, inviting people to enter it, like a grand-mother embracing her children, with its imaginary gaze locked into the vastness of the Mediterranean Sea.

    Here is a quote from Plensa about this piece:

    I always imagined that our skin is permanently tattooed with text – our life, our experiences – tattooed, but with invisible ink. And then suddenly, somebody is able to decipher these tattoos; that person becoming a lover, a friend. That is probably why I work with sculptures like this, this human form composed solely of letters, like cells. It’s almost biological.
