About the work :

Longtemps, au loin, l'Iran is a work by French contemporary artist Cécile Raynal, from the "petites histoires en réserve" (tales from the storage area) series.

This installation of figurative smoked sandstone sculptures is comprised of a man and a suitcase. The man is standing, arms folded holding the left hand up to his face, the suitcase is at his feet. He seems to be waiting, contemplating. The title of the work is indicative of the situation. The man appears to be staring into the distance, after a forced exile his thoughts perhaps focused on his homeland.

« Are we not all children, grand-children or great grand-children of migrants? Have there not always been ayatollahs, and savagery to flee rather than perish? A suitcase has forever been an object in which to conceal secrets, souvenirs, clothes, an object which accompanies us to the unknown. A suitcase is indicative of travel. »

This sculpture exhibited in the Arts et Métiers museum between 29 May and 26 Aug 2018, part of the "petites histoires en réserve" series was created during Cécile Raynal's residency behind the scenes at the museum in 2017. As per her method, the artist created busts and standing figurines of the people she met as well as animal sculptures (wolves and foxes) recurrent in the works of the artist for a few years now.
