Descripción de la Exposición
I work on time, memory and more specifically the memory of water, because it has been a carrier of history and emotions for more than 15 years as an artist. I create memory cards of places crossed, nebulae of memories. In our world where everything is so fast and hectic, I would like to focus on the things that matter, we have lost sight of what is important it seems to me, overtaken by a strong and radical world where speed is omnipresent. I think that my work today has a particular resonance because it seems to me that there is a lack of poetry, elegance and coherence evident in our time. It is an ode to the grandiose spectacles, to the natural elements that surround us and to the grandiose spectacles they give us to see, this miracle of life. And yet sometimes in the tulmute of our lives, we forget the meaning of ... existence, of this given time that we have. We forget that we belong to a whole, we may give ourselves too much importance too. There is a lack of cloudiness, of gray areas. We must have an opinion about everything and all the time. We always have to choose And it has to be a crystal clear opinion: it's bad or it's good, it's a yes or it's a no. There are no more gray areas. The collective memory is erased in favor of individualism and immediacy, the relationship to the past is altered. Everyone says they want to reconnect with nature, to be consistent with the times, but no one does it intellectually or spiritually. We even forget the exploits of this nature or just the incredible luck of living trying to surpass life or nature, sometimes creating an accident. I find that the principle of memory collapses, hence this need not to forget through my work. Items of memories or items that take us back to the past are very short-lived. It's a photo, a video, a text message it's something we can't discuss because it leaves no room for discussion or uncertainty. There's no mixing, you have to see what's shown to you, hear what's playing and believe it. This project would be to bring us back to the poetry that lives in us, to bring back and revive this part of memories which is nebulous, this part of our feelings and our sensations which are not as clear-cut as our time tries to make us believe. Glimpse the elegance of things again. The origin of my work lies mainly in a questioning of the memory of places, the perception and balance of these. Each light of a country, of a place, offers a particular harmony, it is another atmosphere, it is necessary to seek it, to discover it, to apprehend it. It is in this sense that I like to travel, to find my first impression of things. To do this I have this need to disconnect myself regularly from my daily life, to always have a fresh look. How to discover a place and return to intensity and reaction with it? I have this need in my work to arrive at a neutral, virgin place where everything is to be built. This is why when I move I always look for this feeling of starting over. These new places I represent to myself as mythical and poetic spaces open to the field of possibilities. My work is a constant back and forth between the outside world that I want new and my inner world full of memories and sensations. It takes birth both in these new places and brings back memories of a distant interior. These moments of back and forth between uprooting and inner memories allow me to reinterpret with a new light what I perceive of the essence of a place and a moment. There is in my work, this permanent need to seek a balance, between the immutable and the movement. I seek to apprehend the space around me through the prism of my past emotions. The loss of our landmarks generated by uprooting forces us to a stronger receptivity of the surrounding space. Thus we become a foreign land, ready to be rediscovered... My painting and my various installations in relation to and respectful of the landscape, are organized like an interior walk under a new light. My painting is done in harmony between lines and colors. I seek to signify the smooth encounter (in harmony and balance) between different elements essential to life and memory. My colors and features do not fight but evolve freely, continue or stop like plants that would grow seeking light. I hope that my work allows us to bring us back to the poetry that lives in us, to bring back and revive this part of the memories which is nebulous, this part of our feelings and our sensations which are not as clear-cut as our time tries to persuade.
