Ange Leccia

La Mer, 2016


Ange Leccia revisits one of his most celebrated video works: La Mer. Playing on the sinuous and graphic aspects of waves, the artist transforms the landscape into an abstract and volatile composition evoking the elusive nature of existence, inviting us to see the world in a new way.
