« Georges », the Dragon Fountain is a new urban legend.
Georges is the Nordic Jörmungan, the « world snake » which surrounds the earth and is
sentenced to drink eternally. Georges the Leviathan of polymers is thirsty, very thirsty, even if it
is already drunk and stuffed of all the plastic that it has eaten. Georges is the antonym of the
dragon, its triumphant double, a Gaulish carnyx made of polyethylene.
Georges is the monstrous sixth element, the plastic wyvern. Georges is both a fountain, an
installation, a sculpture, a machine and an unknown urban object. Georges is a tribute to Nicky
de Saint-Phalle’s and Jean Tinguely’s fountains just as much as Étienne Bossut’s installations.
