Exploding tooth paste – Sculpture by Addé 2019
Exploding tooth paste
Originally, this piece is dedicated to space, and its exploration, a major challenge for humanity.
Then, this happened :
50 years ago, « Easy Rider » road-film, brought, through a simple scenario, a new perception of what life could be out of the beaten path.
It was sustained, maybe driven, by quite a number of great musics among which Steppenwolf’s « Born to be wild ».
As a matter of fact, when the lyrics are « Fire all of your guns at once and explode into space » I couldn’t help but hear « exploding tooth paste » which, since then, has given a delightful twist to the song.
