Command of the Syndicat mixte "le Lac de Vassivière" (owner Syndicat mixte "le Lac de Vassivière") in 1983

Born 1938, Constantin Popovici died in Lazi, Romania, in 1995.

This artwork has been realized for the Symposium organized in 1983 on Vassivière island."The granite material commands to me a very harsh synthesis, a reduction of the means as in the concentration of expression. The volumes, surfaces' rhythms are directed toward a geometrical unity the more concentrated possible, toward a compression of the idea itself. "Essai" belongs to the family of my "attempts" that I consider failed flights. An "outside" justification is there: a hole in the volume ... But it is not the only reason ...". (Constantin Popovici)
