Description of the work
The work À la Pêche aux Moules (I don't want to go there mom anymore) is part of the Dons de la mer collection. It questions the artist's observation in the face of the abundance of rejections from holidaymakers and fishermen visible on the edge of the Ionian coast.
It is in 2020, that François Xavier Laloi realizes this piece with the idea of harvesting this raw material constantly renewed by the winds and thus to constitute a close collaboration with the Mediterranean "Mother". The artist likes to imagine a poetry around the personification of this sea. She brings him, in the sandstone of the winds, these rejects having a value so particular in his eyes.
In Mussel Fishing (I don't want to go there mom anymore) the artist has chosen to assemble mussel nets from one and the same place, Mare Piccolo in Taranto. These nets trap the mesh which acts as a support. Being an element having the same function as the net, that of preventing entry or exit, the end of the story is; such is taken who believed to take.
