Gilles PEGEL

Hardfork (PCBR), 2020

The series of “Hardfork” sculptures takes up the theme of the helix, an archetypal form that runs through the artist’s oeuvre. He used it in his early graffiti for technical-cum-aesthetic reasons, and, as he himself says, for reasons of easiness, but it re-appears in several works before imposing itself as an independent object. The evolution of the helix is emblematic of his working method: he composes, he sets aside, and he takes up again. He lets time work for him and the lapse functions naturally.
