Yves Zbinden and Anne-Hélène Darbellay - Les naissances de la pleine lune
Under the feet of passers-by, a series of gold squares shimmer among the paving stones of the place Saint-François. Each bears the first name of a child born in Lausanne in 1998 on a night of the full moon. Arranged like a constellation, these brass paving stones lead to the fountain in the shape of a half-moon from which pours forth life-giving water. A work that celebrates birth and life.
