Description :
This object from the world of dreams is neither a bicycle wheel, Marcel Duchamp’s first readymade, nor one of his rotoreliefs (discs with spiral motifs that seem to be 3D forms when they rotate), nor is it the bicycle ridden by Albert Hofmann on his legendary journey (the artist managed to track down an identical model). This hybrid object linking all these stories propels us into the limitless imagination of its creator. “Pass through the doors of perception, transform your senses, open your mind.”
