PHILIPPE DECELLE - VOL DE CANARDS

SOME CULTURE...

Sculptures in painted and soldered aluminium tubes (1998)

“Vol de Canards” is an aerial work of art made up of 31 metal ducks painted in fluorescent colours and suspended from the ceiling of the station. The colours and the simplicity of the lines clearly belong to Philippe Decelle’s style. They give the station a cheerful and colourful atmosphere. The work of art is based on the idea of repetition, reinforced with the constant arrival and departure of metro trains. When standing on the platform it is not only worth looking up, to where the ducks are, but also down to the ground, where the shadows of birds make curious effects.
