    Avenue Winston Churchill

    Vivien Roubaud was born in 1986 in Vouziers, France. He lives and works in Brussels. Installed in the center of the Avenue Winston Churchill between the Grand Palais and the Petit Palais, Vivian Roubaud’s sculpture is comprised of industrial machines and mechanical parts that produce the necessary physical conditions for the transformation of a large quantity of sugar and its evaporation into space. It is both playful and participatory. Technical pairings create clouds of expanding candyfloss, propelled high into the Parisian sky. The work alludes to the vocabulary of construction; a positive allegory of the work site. The noisy machines are morphed into poetic, sculptural volutes. Presented within the framework of the artistic and cultural programming of the Grand Paris Express, initiated by the Société du Grand Paris and under the artistic direction of José-Manuel Goncalvès, the artwork was funded by the Grand Paris Express endowment fund and produced by CENTQUATRE-PARIS.
