Visual artist Antoine Schmitt creates artworks in the form of objects, installations, and situations to address the processes of movement and question their intrinsic problematics of plastic, philosophical, or social nature. Heir of kinetic art and cybernetic art, and nourished by metaphysical science fiction, he endlessly questions the dynamic interactions between human nature and reality.
La Sprite is an artificial creature living in the chimneys of the Le Havre EDF power plant. It appears at night, dances, moves, and turns, leaping from one chimney to another by diving into the depths of the earth or jumping in the night sky. This moody creature can be happy or tired, edgy or relaxed, fragile or energetic, and is overly sensitive to the weather.
