Summer… France…Nice… Hotel Negresco.

Inaugurated in 1913, and listed as a National Historic Monument, this Belle Époque palace is located on the seafront promenade overlooking the Bay of Angels. Hotel furnished throughout with a unique collection of antiques and contemporary works of art.

Among others these sculptures paid my attention. They were standing and moving in a same time, rolling somewhere… The spanish sculptor Franck R. Tassi offers a representation of a mixture of various elements resulting from his concern about the relation of man in front of the universe, the society or technology. His style of expression shows man as creator as well as victim and often prisonner of his technology and even slave of his own inventions… It’s from the official description of his sculptures Mechanic Dancer (Cyborg M.M.) and Jeanne De Loulu…

I use here my shots of these sculptures and an interior of Hotel Negresco to define the word “roller” as a symbol of our life. We all run, move, roll somewhere… We don’t know where we go… Tomorrow is unpredictable but we’re rolling there, we all are the Rollers…
