The following quote from the philosopher R. Descartes resonates me:
"To reach the truth, it is necessary once in a lifetime to get rid of all the opinions that we have received, and to rebuild again the whole system of our knowledge. The path is unique for everyone, the way to reach the goal varies with the traveler." - René Descartes
My work is born from my interrogations on a society which calls for change; political, ecological, societal or personal.
Why are we looking for change; existential crisis or awareness? Are we so different from each other? Aren't we all in search of independence and freedom? How do we need to exist in harmony with ourselves and others. These questions led me to a series of sculptures on canvas.
Back in 1994, I made larvae in gas with the human aspect “statufied” on paper. Today, these larvae have been transformed into a "stone" silhouette on canvas. The canvas illustrates what we want to get rid of in order to achieve the dreamed change and the silhouette emerges in a new space; the hope of a better one. The " stone " that enveloppes the silhouettes, shows that despite our will, we feel at certain moments as if we are walled in, as if prevented from accessing it.
The serial works of “ Sur Toile “ are mysterious and full of little secrets as it is for all of us. There are different stages; destruction-reconstruction. Importantly, they depict the flaws, the wounds faced by the individual, it must explode into small pieces to reinvent itself, rebuild itself to find its truth to build the change. It is composed like an encounter, a taming between the canvas and me. Step by step a paper structure develops like a puzzle of various fragments of life that fit together.
I compose and innovate the technique when I meet a problem. In fact, it’s the same for all of us in our life. I trust that each individual has the patience and courage to gain the freedom to exist.
