Life of a solivagant

the traveller

“Bruno Catalano (b. 1960), France
Nicko, 2017 Bronze sculpture
A suitcase, a man. He seizes it, and goes to the unknown.  The traveller is this man left to himself, a man propelled in the infinity of time and space.  His house is nothing more than a suitcase and his being, gradually, will be stripped of all that he believed indispensable, all his self so cleverly built by our societies.  He is no longer the man of a world, but the man in the world, still imbued with his culture but become fragile in the face of immensity.  His quest will not be without damage.  Man defragmented, destabilized, stripped of his bearings, he walks towards his salvation as much as towards his run. Everything will now be reinvented.  This traveller escapes from himself, to meet his unknown land.”
