Un lieu vide où il ne se passe rien
installation . 2022
présentée à la Galerie FOFA
This endeavor to foresee the interiors as precisely as possible. To picture them exhaustively through the folding of pieces of paper before being able to set them up in space really. A practice of anticipation. This place was activated (visualized), known, before it actually unfolded in real life.
Isn’t there something wavy about this wall?
Outside, something that sounds and looks like a storm. Here, images are displayed as accounts of things which are taking place here.
we appreciate, it is pleasant
grandiosity and prestige, nice looking objects in nice looking spaces
luxurious places, disgusting configuration
(modernity symbol social prestige aspiration, said this architect)
these interiors, emblems of our frenzy to ornament our fear
To protect oneself from the outside the walls and what we glue onto them partitioning apparatuses acting surfaces things are fine.
spatial perception and nausea
how fragile are our constructions
Here is an exhibition but it is an installation but it is a decoration but if something was taking place here one could think this place as a theatre set. The plan is to make an imitation of a horrible place. Clean. Sanitary. Artificial. Barricaded.
An interior that is better to be wary of.
