François Weil visits quarries across the world to find the most remarkable rocks, looking closely at their shape, grain and colour.

Once they are in his studio, he leaves them for a while before assembling and putting the rocks into motion.

The rocks are mounted onto a steel turning mechanism. Ultimately, perfect balance is achieved. We feel invited to touch the sculpture and feel a sense of astonishment when we are effortlessly able to put these enormous rocks into motion.

François Weil works with a geological mind. This instinctual sensation can be found within us all, and here it is rediscovered by the senses; the eye and the hand.
