Description of the work
Recomposed past is part of the Before I was a tree collection . The work deals with the look of the use of wood in the industrial context and of certain rejections which result from it.
It is in 2019 that François Xavier Laloi realizes this work starting from a single wooden plank that he has completely reduced into slices to, subsequently, bring them together and reconstitute a semblance of a tree trunk.
Once again, there is no question of rediscovering the tree in itself but a metaphorical image of what it was one day ago.
This is a unique piece produced in 1 single copy.
