The question of movement has always been an integral part of Philippe HIQUILY’s work. At the end of the 1950s, he produced the mobiles and fountains. In 1963 he created a trio of monumental weathervanes 12M installed on Elviria beach (Marbella, Spain) that he reinterpreted 30 years later to carry out a monumental project for the 2010 World Expo at Shanghai.
