For the third time, the Baronian_Francey gallery is the playground of an exhibition by Lionel Estève.

Balls endlessly bouncing around. A hula hoop floating in the air. Mobiles apparently doing limbering up exercices. A black shimmering monochrome vibrating like a wave. A skipping rope circling around the place… These sculptures are all in motion and give a dynamic to the space. They remind us of the absurdity of a gym. The viewer will naturally spend time contemplating each sculpture like a playful and hypnotic little show. The artist used the now well-established vocabulary of minimal art; he used it and diverted it: the matter here is not killing the father, but playing with him.
