Last time I visited the port it was holding a very peculiar exhibition. It was the work of Edgardo Carmona, a colombian sculptor that uses common structural steel elements like rods, tubes and sheets to create magnificent art pieces. As you can see in the photos I took during my visit, Carmona, even with such rudimentary materials, succeeded on representation of natural moments and situations of people that easily blend with port textures.
The actions and expressions captured in those steel sculptures remember you Tin Man character from fictional Land of Oz by L. Frank Baum. And The Port de Suffren, with its textures, shades and colors, sets the perfect enviroment for Camona’s masterpieces.
From dock’s boulevard you can realize the high level of maintenance of The City of Light: There is no soot on bridges over Siena river although ships cruise it daily.
If you want more information about Carmona’s work. You can visit his website here.
