For 2016’s Nuit Blanche, the artwork Cote 15,28 l’amour deborde was erected on the façade of the Conciergerie in Paris, showing ribbed vaults turned upside down, sinking, announcing climate change. A recurring obsession of an artist preoccupied by ecological questions, global warming might have led Pierre Delavie to share his vision of a building deformed by heat, which took the form of a monumental installation in Paris at 39 avenue George V in 2007. His latest work can be found on the same avenue, at number 45, the current location of Gallery Loo & Lou, where the rest of the story is being written: an enduring reflection between an artist and his environment.
