Living to death
” The clopers are at the crossroads of documentary. Filled with ease, full of self-satisfaction, to the point of being inflammable! Borrowed directly from a 19th century painting, these are the faces of angels, taken from a cast of young actors.
Watching them surround themselves with wisps of smoke, the “gang des allumés” is the archetype of innocence, vitality and a bright future!
Here the child obviously takes power in order to leave himself in smoke… A kind of striptease, the pictorial account of a contemplative who gives to see what he has stolen from the everyday, at the moment x where the ordinary merges with the extraordinary. ”
Don’t watch the fox go by
“My earliest memory is of a little rhyme we used to sing in the playground in kindergarten. Don’t watch the fox go by … when he’s gone by you’ll watch him.”
The work presented at the gallery “Don’t watch the fox go by” is a story at the border of the dream in which each of us can identify.
A sound installation and an edition that brings together all the answers to the question: What is your first memory?
