The Parisian centre of modern art exposes a retrospective of his genius work. We were dazzled by his Balloon Dogs, heavy and hard shiny metals sculptures imitating the light, delicate and funny kid toy. Interviewed about this specific creation, the artist explains how he has managed to transform an ephemeral object into one that could last and survive.
