Conceived as a stroll through the Biennale, the sculpture trail features nine works that punctuate the alleys and squares.
Upon entering, visitors will be confronted with the imposing Pigeons voyageurs (Die Taubenpost) by the artist Adel Abdessemed (presented here by the artist's studio and a collector).
As a counterpoint, in the middle of the alley that opens onto the Eiffel Tower, sits the imposing flying man by the Belgian artist Panamarenko, Brazil, a bird-man halfway between Icarus and Jules Verne. It belongs to the collections of the prestigious Musée de Flandre.
This alley is a showcase unveiled by Wim Delvoye's bronze, Daphnis & Chloë (Counterclockwise), and then by Koen Vanmechelen's Custodian, a chthonic figure, a female body with a bull's head announcing the passage to a new and surprising era.
The exhibition continues with the works David and Goliath by Christophe Charbonnel (Galerie Bayart), Les fragments du temps by Christian Lapie (Galerie RX), Cerchio, Untitled by Bruno Romeda (Dutko Gallery), Le Baiser by Jivko (L'Univers du Bronze) and the magnificent ceramic I am The passenger by Tamara Van San (Galerie Italienne).
Here, the figure of the pigeon, overhanging the ground of its two meters of height, proposes a reading against feet of its original evocation. The bird, ancient factor of news, carries today, immobile, an explosive charge on its back.
