About this piece, the artist says: 'French writer Georges Perec wrote in Especes d'espace,' Life is going from one space to the next, trying your hardest not to bump yourself. 'Some box to put this maxim to the test. Edmard (the name of the man portrayed) boxed for a very long time and the gloves he entrusted me are proof of this.' This sculpture was exhibited in the Arts et Metiers museum in Paris between as part of the 'petites histoires en reserve' exhibition.
