Dark Matter, 2018

Dark Matter, 2018

Dark Matter is part of the project carried out in 2018, The Beginning. It is one of the three large-scale installations that make up this unique set, which forms the prism of a fundamental research that nourishes the work of Jeremy Maxwell Wintrebert; that of a vibratory, emotional, universal, communicative energy. Dark Matter, a wall installation of fifteen black cylinders, the juxtaposition and accumulation of which form a circular magma symbolizing original matter.

Using a blowpipe, Jeremy performs the first transparent glass picking, in fusion. He blows a first air bubble into the glass. This is then a whole world in creation that begins to turn and will not stop until it has found its destiny. The blower spins the pipe continuously, alternating between blowing and marbling to tirelessly shape a "ball" of glass, mastering the forces applied to it, remaining vigilant to anticipate its movements and reactions. The addition of ebony black color in the form of pigmented glass ballote will be worked by flattening it. Then three additional transparent glass pickings are added. The glass ball then weighs up to 30 to 45 kg and must be either blown to obtain a perfect sphere shaped like a container that will be deployed in a disc out of the oven and at the last moment under the combined effect of exceptional reheating and rapid rotation.
