The skeleton of a bell tower is dressed in a membrane that hugs its slender body. Forsaken, this work is a reminder of our mixed origins. A bell tower without a building, a buried vessel’s chimney, the sculpture rises from the ground like a rocket ready to take off. Its canvas dress evokes a shelter, a tent, a tepee. With its rather unusual erection in such a narrow passage, the Solitary catches passersby by surprise. The urban platform at the entrance invites us to enter this space and experience the celestial aura of the arrow.
