In favor of an on-site presentation of Opus Magnum.
Yann Faisant’s Opus Magnum is an attentive witness of the environment in which it is exhibited. It was designed to come out of the studio and the gallery to be set in sites where the will to protect beauty or the environment is obvious.
Such a presentation allows the artist to return the symbolic apple fruit to its natural setting, to recreate a link between man and nature, between the individual and the artwork and thus to enhance its natural or cultural environment.
The exhibition of an artwork in situ never fails to create a genuine event not only thanks to its very presence but also by its staging. The aim of the exhibit is thus to create a dialogue between the works and the sites they are shown in, and to initiate a dialogue between the work and the viewer and ultimately between the latter and the site itself.
In other words, art is no longer merely esthetical, it becomes ethical. It resonates in the mind of the viewer drawing his/her attention to what should be protected.
Opus Magnum, an environmental and esthetical message
Roaming is an integral part of the Opus Magnum work. The journey does relocates the artist at the heart of the esthetical and ecological commitment by allowing the work to both magnify the site on which it is presented and be magnified by it.
Reflecting the itinerant spirit of Opus Magnum, Yann Faisant wishes to conclude agreements with various places, cities, sites and offer them, with the presence and exhibition of his Opus Magnum, a vision that differs from the alarmism often found in ecological messages.
Indeed through the beauty, the aestheticism and the perfection of the work, which was built according to the Fibonacci sequence, the artist creates an interaction between the artwork and the site, with the latter’s beauty responding to the former’s perfection.
