"An Art whose design and execution are based on the simultaneity of aspects in the three dimensions." (Manifesto of the Groupe Espace)
On encountering artists like Fernand Léger and Jean Arp while taking refuge in Biot in 1940, André Bloc set about modelling his first sculptures with clay. When he returned to Paris, he enriched his vocabulary with cement, brass, iron, marble and plastic. By cutting, moulding, welding and assembling, Bloc explored the world of forms. Signal was presented in the Groupe Espace's "Architecture, Forms, Colour" exhibition in Biot in 1954.
