Twelfth title of the collection “the work of a sculptorâ€?, the catalogue paysages d’entre-villes, is devoted to the question of contemporary landscape, to the boundaries of towns and wild nature which has come to be called wasteland and peripheral land. So many landscapes with a direct link to our unconscious fears has nothing to envy apart from extreme romantic landscapes. It is in these peripheral areas today that you can find these mysteries, legends and these fears that once haunted the forests around the towns and villages. It is this unstable and dynamic balance of the landscape that artists address together in the catalogue of this exhibition in comparison with the Sculptures pour l’architecture series which Zadkine produced in the second half of the 60s.
