DÉRACINEMENT is a sculpture by Tal Waldman. It was exhibited at Galerie VIA, and at the OFF-Paris Design Week as part of the Tal-Waldman Upcycling projects. DÉRACINEMENT follows the initial theme and research methodology EMBROIDERED MEMORIES. Beyond the immediate metaphor of “man as a tree”, it touches on the phenomenon of uprooting, which is particularly relevant given the current issue of migration in Europe. The roots of the tree are exposed, uprooted and symbolically torn. DÉRACINEMENT revisits the technique of traditional stained glass to create a three-dimensional work included in wood. This is a second work of art in a larger research called 3D VITRAIL, initiated by Tal Waldman in collaboration with Catherine Aoustin. This research is committed to exploring the volume of stained glass in association with other materials and techniques (blown glass, glass engraving, metalworking, wood inlay). The first series named MOTHER-WOMAN combines a stained-glass window and a sculpture.
Creation: Tal Waldman, Talva D. In partnership with the cabinet-maker Hubert Kerléo and the stained-glass window Catherine Aoustin.
