One of a Kind

Apprivoise-moi

Laure Simoneau

Laure Simoneau’s delightful wire sculpture "Tame Me" is a direct reference to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's The Little Prince: "One only understands the things that one tames,” said the fox... "If you want a friend, tame me. . .” Two wire chairs hold hands, in the company of a tamed a fox and a bird. In the footsteps of Alexander Calder,  Laure's wire sculptures create substance out of nothing: the space between the wires becomes tangible, and the sculpture comes to life.
