Through a dream of a dialogue with Leonardo da Vinci, Salaï, his disciple, model and lover, revisits his master’s works. He questions this knowledge in motion, this hunger for infinity revealed by thousands of pages of codex. Leonardo, by multiplying his research, allows him to see that everything is linked: anatomy, mechanics, drawings of interlacing patterns, bird flight studies, lead to the soft face of the Mona Lisa, which the master scanned, adjusting it over and over, in the search for perfection. How many sketches of war machines for the froth and fury of the tormented curved horses of The Battle of Anghiari? From the parachute to the paddle-boat, from his disappearing paintings to the dreamed air plane, Leonardo leads a perpetual quest where faber and sapiens, hand and intellect, technique and art, come together. Thus the desire was born to draw in the sky this crystallisation of man and of knowledge in art. Leonardo wanted to paint the wind; in his wake, Plasticiens Volants reinvent the master’s fantasies by sculpting the air.
