“The Sword moves away from being a weapon to become a sign. It is both primitive in terms of its material and sophisticated through its composition. Its shape is generated by the radiant juxtaposition of the same steel rod. A single deformation of the strand is enough to evoke the handle, the guard and the blade. It is the void contained in the heart of the strands of the sword that create its substance, its breath.” – Cécile Barani
