Georges COUNASSE

(Belgium, 1933-2005)

Eternal enchantment that furrows our childhood memories, the merry-go-rounds of Georges Counasse, a retired baker, turn to the rhythm of record-players that usually serve as their base. An assembly of elements gleaned from childhood and its rediscovery (small dolls that ride the carrousels, pearls, Christmas garlands, etc.) recreate the fair of the years 1947-1950 of his youth. Merry-go-round, big wheel, chain carousel, ice palace, and bumper cars awaken a nostalgic happiness in us all.
