Appreciated by Marcel Duchamp since late 1950’s when they first met him in New York, Takis’ artworks are a mixture of art and science putting energy on top of our minds.
When I first saw the exhibition at Palais de Tokyo two days ago, I had the impression that such materials as iron, aluminium and all sorts of metals are precious, constant transmitters of energy.
In a higher level they are unfinished sources of energy, related directly to Earth.
Transformed into art by the Greek artist and researcher Takis, they keep their eternal energy anyhow.
Amazing, amazing works that we can see at Palais de Tokyo in Paris, from February to May 2015.
