graphite on ivory paper 50x35cm, 2016-17
They tell me:
“At all that it rings, you dig”
Metal scraps, nails, so almost nothing or all a treasure.
The objects archived reveal tiny details, play also the part of topographic statements.
Inspired by encyclopedia plates, the composition stays intuitive, almost naive. The forms associations propose a subjective classification, more earthly than scientific.
An amateur archiving which tries to put on paper the underground anachronism, where the great and the small history cohabit.
