Didier Faustino brings color & comedy to this historic villa in France:
As if exploding out of the entrance to Bloc’s folly, This is Not a Lovesong is Faustino’s first piece, which combines sculpture and architecture . Framing the doors, the installation is made up of a brightly painted orangey-red floor and adjoining walls, one cut in the quirky style of comic book explosion. The shape of the temporary installation adds life to the once inhabited villa, suggesting movement and action in a building that was once a home and is now a stoic museum space. Made from bricks and mortar, the bright piece enlivens the lush green landscape of Bloc’s complex, while also echoing Bloc’s signature architectural style, tying present with past.
