About the Artist/Site

Former military resister Le Lagadec first began to express himself through poetry and painting. But it was his Mégafers, twenty monumental idols of metal erected in his orchard, which brought the Breton artist his greatest renown. “A work doesn’t write itself; it is born,” said the artist who, beginning in the 1960s, fabricated one –and never more—of these iron giants each year. Today his wife hosts visits and explains the meaning and origins of these “pagan divinities.”

Among the figures are representations of Alienation and Noise, as well as Prometheus, Spartacus Waiting, the Revolt of the Albatross, and the Solitude of the Poet.
