The exhibition presents twenty pieces on the theme of Taking Flight, which have been selected from the last ten years of the artist’s production.
As Roulin recently stated:
“Aerial myths have always filled my distinct universe: Icarus, Mustang, Daedalus. Perhaps a childhood memory of war planes like Stuka, Mustang, Thunderbolt. Their metal wings replacing the feathered ones. It is only one step further that today we are entering into the ‘Bio-mechanical’ age.”
‘Let’s Fly’ is an optimistic, spontaneous and joyful exhibition, a reaction to the veil of sadness that is spreading over Europe.
September 2016 was also a key time for Roulin who inaugurated a major sculpture commission in Charleroi hospital in Belgium; a stunning assemblage of glass, steel, bronze and stone entitled “The Ages of Humanity”.
