Artwork description

Three sculptures mounted on poles are located at the intersection of two pathways at Jarry Park. The most impressive is a structure made of metal wires twisted in an irregular way. There is also a sculpture in the form of a human forearm and, finally, another with a small crouching figure.

This work deals with both the figure and the imagination of a child in a public space. By following the concentrated gaze of the ball kid, every child or adult can perceive the spinning trajectory of the ball while also observing the transient tension of the arm counterbalancing the body of the player who is striking the ball.
