9. Ugo Rondinone (*1964), flower moon, 2011

Since the 1990s, the Swiss artist has been producing pieces the perfection of whose production conceals a nostalgic and romantic dimension, and which he assembles in his shows like the parts of a stage set, so as to conjure up a particular sentimental state. The series of works made of moulded, enamelled aluminium evokes trees that have been struck by lightning or dried out by a natural phenomenon, creating a fascination thanks to their ambivalence between nature and artifice.
