For this exhibition at Perrotin Paris, which brings together ten minimalistic, enigmatic sculptures made of glass or metal bricks, Jean-Michel Othoniel has systematized the use of a module that entered his work in 2009, after a journey to India. On the road from Delhi to Firozabad, a city with an age-old glassmaking tradition, he was struck by the stacks of bricks accumulated in the hope of building a house and by the countless altars covered in offerings and multicoloured necklaces.
