Description: Jean-Michel Folon's 'Partir' (2002) in the Garden of Roses was specifically created to frame a view. But what changes elevates this above cliché, is that we are witnessing the relationship a viewer (the young lady) has with a work of art. The outer frame in portrait orientation creates steep diagonals with the landscape-orientated briefcase and base, giving a stronger feeling of depth. The slightly formal feel to this composition is because there is only one axis along which the installation can be seen as a true rectangle.
