Sur la paille

Inspired by the Brothers Grimm tale Rumpel­stilzchen, Sur la paille is an installation by Zorro & Bernardo (fabric, gold thread; triptych: central panel, 340×340 cm and two side panels: 165×340 cm) that was conceived and produced for the scholarship contest Berthoud, Galland-Chevalier and Lissignol 2005. It evokes a strange alchemy of the transformation of matter, and also plays with the iconography of Christmas and New Year using a Judeo-Christian semiology (Epiphany).
