    Born in 1979, Jean Denant lives and works in Sète. His sculpture entitled Du rocher souriant jusqu’au ciel un continent commence (“From the smiling rock to the sky, a continent begins”) is composed of three sculpted volcanic rocks, whose at cut face is fully inlaid with mirrored polished inox. The dark mass of the rock lies on the ground; its at surface, directed skywards, is reflective like a mirror. The artist initiates a discussion between land and sky, body and mind. From the weight of the rock to the lightness of air, when combined the different elements explore the relationships between nature and culture, architecture and landscape.
