Inspired by the Neptune statue of place des Carmes fountain in Besançon (FR) (which doesn’t have his trident anymore) and by local stories, the artist dropped in the Doubs a fork made of collected pipes. The trident finally sank in the water, finishing its performance “Nepune sinks like the river runs”.
