ÉchappéeSylvie de Meurville (FR)

Seen from the sky… Lake Annecy and its watershed. Cut out, chiselled, a shape appears drawing the outline of the water veins of the landscape. As if stopping at the water’s edge, the tall metal sculpture faces the real lake.
Pretty poetic and playful window inviting you to escape onto the lake and its mountains, an abyss that enhances the landscape. From its height of four meters, this stainless steel plate filters the light, offering another view of the splendor of the site. Since its establishment in 2018 on the Jacquet sur le Pâquier promenade, residents, passers-by and tourists like to take photos in front of this fine sculpture honeycombed with delicate cutouts. Reflections of water, shimmering against pierced metal… Time is suspended… An invitation to daydream, a sudden desire to escape…
