Vaisseau, stainless steel sculpture by the sculptor Hélène Vans
"Vaisseau", a stainless steel sculpture measuring 1.90m x 1.60m x 0.60m, installed in 2020 at the entrance to the central garden of a housing estate in Bezons. Commissioned by the company First Avenue, Paris.
As part of the scheme set up by the Ministry of Culture “one building, one work”, the company First Avenue commissioned the sculptor Hélène Vans to create a sculpture to be located at the entrance to the central garden of a housing estate in Bezons.
From a set of drawings and ellipse prints exploring the notions of anti-gravity and mobility, Hélène Vans worked with a company using 3D software and providing the printing technique for the model. The production was entrusted to the Crézé company in Rennes.
Other sculptures are now being prepared in this formal continuity. This initiative was supported by the mayor of the town of Bezons so that contemporary art could be present in the town.
Realization : Crézé
The sculptor Hélène Vans received the Nominated Prior Prize within the team made up of the private project owner, the project manager Pierre Gommier, heritage architect and the companies Crézé and Louis Geneste, for the creation of the bas-relief sculpture “The Dance of the Cosmos” in mirror polished stainless steel and Ti Rose Gold tinted stainless steel at the International Cultural Heritage Exhibition at the Carrousel du Louvre by the association “Le Geste d’Or” on 27 October 2019.
