Patricio Lagos, sculptor of the Ephemeral, through the accomplishment of one of his pieces. From dusk till dawn, a day goes by, of human preparation, artistic creation and natural destruction. We accompain him on the Island of Chiloe, his birth locality, and in the bay of Mont Saint-Michel, exile place, in his search for the ideal spot where his sand bodies will arise, offered afterwards to the deadly caresses of the sea. The artist shares here with us the intimate and fleeting instants of creation, and the paroxism of his fusion with the elements.
