Chamois – scarrab is a part of the “provisional species,” defined and illustrated by French caricaturist Grandville. Illuminating the plexiglass sculpture reveals the whole process of creation. In fact, we obtain the three-dimensional technical drawing of the object on the ground, as well as patrons of the component parts to the wall. The sculpture here reveals totally itself despite of its ghostly and illusory appearance.
