Through this experimental installation supported by Backside gallery, David Mesguich wanted to confront his past practice of vandal to his work as a contemporary artist while questioning the concept of control of beings and spaces.

After two weeks of construction, interspersed with riots that he documented in Nantes, one morning, he abandoned a sculpture of 4m high in the enclosure of a train yard in which he returned on the same evening to paint “user” on a freight car parked facing the sculpture.

The next day early, the train leaves, putting an end to this ephemeral “mise en abime” whereas the carved woman remained to watch her hand pass through a fence until a storm destroy it some days later.
