Sculpture Saturday #10

I’m staying with the seafront in Cagnes sur Mer but heading towards Villeneuve Loubet to the Banc de Poisson (School of Fish), another of my favourite civic installations. This giant 2007 wrought-iron sculpture is by Sylvain Subervie. It’s been a fixture on the seafront since 2008 when it was acquired by the town hall for 200,000 euros. However, it’s not the only example of the French sculptor’s work as I spotted a similar installation on the roof of the l’Hôtel de Paris in St Tropez.

In case you’re wondering, the statue in the foreground is Brigit Bardot by Milo Manara.

    • There is a lot of civic art in France. We’re a small town of 50,000 inhabitants and we have some amazing art, all over town and particularly along the seafront.
