Bouilleur de Savon, fragment
For the show Topknots, Nicolas Momein transformed La Villa du Parc into an artisanal soap factory. From an original formula devised by a master soap maker, four batches were produced in a space containing a little over a ton of soap. Designed to be a mobile production unit, Bouilleur de savon ended its run at La Villa du Parc with the sale of certified fragments of the piece to the public, i.e., soap cubes weighing around 300 grams. The artwork is thus spread here and there, continuing to live its independent life and evolve according to the gestures of its various collectors.
