  Xavier Veilhan’s back and forth in time is related to the origins of modernity, in constant effort to update this period with nowadays tools. It is a new approach of an archeology of the modern in order to imagine possible evolutions and to make the present more understandable. Hence his interest in Italian Futurism, evoked in Vibration, a life-size sculpture of a horse and its cart in shimmering, frozen motion forms. The artist refers also in an anachronistic way to urban transportation development. What interests Veilhan here is the disturbance of the eye, the invention of a new vision of sculpture and captivation of the viewer.
