Les dents de la mer

Cement and steel / 22 x 20 x 3” — 2023

What if a sentient Mother Earth had enough of being abused by humans and was sending its most notorious marine predators after us?

LES DENTS DE LA MER* is a group of shark fins emerging from the ground to tail the public on land. The project appears as a playful intervention and a cautionary tale about the consequences of messing up the ecosystem. The fins were installed for the first time in the coastal city of Annapolis Royal (Nova Scotia), like they were coming inland from the Atlantic Ocean.

*LES DENTS DE LA MER can be translated as "The teeth of the Sea". It is the French title of the American natural horror film series JAWS.
