Takis : 3 totems, espace musical – Exhibition at Centre Pompidou, Forum, 1981
Film by Danielle Jaeggi
About this environment of musical and light sculptures presented, Takis says: “If these objects weren’t there, I would do something else. I did not design a shape beforehand, I simply put the elements together with a logic that was no doubt sculptural, but also technical. Of course the objects are imposing, the electric aspect a little terrifying and also nostalgic. What fascinates me is bringing out something invisible with this electron trap, which is basically the télélumière. »
