Directed for an exhibition on the theme "it is forbidden to forbid" this sculpture represents the Pandora's box which takes again the famous slogan of 1968: A claim of individual freedom, a seductive audacity which posed the law of the desire. What is it leading to? To the feeling of impunity in the face of the law? "Pandora, the first woman on Earth, was created by Zeus to avenge Prometheus, the man having stolen fire. Zeus offers him in marriage to Epimetheus, the brother of Prometheus. She is accompanied by a box that she is forbidden to open. But, curious, she indulges in temptation and liberates all earthly evils before closing the box, imprisoning hope, which has not had time to leave. My sculpture represents the box that has liberated the evils of selfish egoism superior to the interest of all, such as a spill that damages the environment. My box is not closed! Being a convinced optimist!
