” The wave ” Alexia Weill, monumental sculpture in purple gray marble. Exceptional installation in Leman Lake. The circular wave of the artist Alexia Weill presents itself in a circle where water is in perpetual movement, a symbol of life that is eternally renewed. A silhouette of woman coiled in the wave, undulates in this matrix water. Her hair merges with the foam, she melts in this wave, she animates. It generates the circular motion of the wave. In tribute to Camille Claudel’s “La Vague” or “Les Baigneuses” (1864 -1943) “where the three identical little bronze women bend their knees before the huge wave of marble-onyx collapses upon them. which overhangs them. You can see an image of destiny … “Musée Rodin.   The artist Alexia Weill wanted to represent the woman in action, it is she who gives the movement, it is she who animates the wave. She takes her destiny in hand, she is no longer very small face to the water element. It is she who influences the movement of water, it becomes this water of creation.

 

Alexia Weill installed her Circular Impressions at the Halle Inox in 2020. Her sculpture “The Wave” exhibited in Lake Geneva during the Biennale de Montreux 2019, joins the private collection of Patrick and Leila Delarive at the legendary Old Mechanical Construction Workshops of  Vevey that have been entirely renovated by Patrick Delarive.
