By day, it rises out of the river; at night, a halo of light emanates from each of the tree's branches, which surges out against the black background.
Since graduating from the École des beaux-arts de Nantes where they first met, the two artists, known for their drawings, have never left each other's side and have built an international career together. In the room they designed for in the Château du Pé for Estuaire, the black paint of the ceiling drips over the walls, and the night invades the day. The same could be said for their work in general, where dreams seem to take over reality. Looking at their drawing is like trying to follow a line of logic in a dream – it is based in reality but it is deformed, and they infuse this with a joyful or disturbing fantasy. Driven by a desire to open up the field of drawing, they also make animation films, wall-drawings, or installations in which they include a sculpture. Their piece for the cliffs of the Butte Sainte-Anne is their first autonomous sculpture. Lunar Tree takes the form of a perfectly white dead tree, 12 m (40 feet) tall. By day, when seen from Square Maurice-Schwob, it rises out of the river; at night, from the tip of Île de Nantes (at the foot of the grey crane), a halo of light emanates from each of the tree's branches, which surges out against the black background. Shape and colour make the tree look like a drawing with volume in space.
