About the project
"200 years remind us that against time, no one can do anything. Times change, but certain things are immutable and run through the years with a strange robustness. The realisation of this passing time, sedimentation, a process in which particles of any matter gradually stop moving and come together in layers. These layers that are created, year after year, to form a universal memory, that of the earth and our imprint. So many thicknesses, like the pages of a book telling us the story, our story. I am used to comparing life to a card game, and to consider each encounter as a card that is added to our game, with the hope of ending our adventure having been able to collect as many cards as possible. It is in this spirit of accumulating experiences and exchanges that I deeply believe in exploring this idea of sedimentation of memory and mimesis of being and respond to this creative invitation. By creating my own accumulation, layers each bearing in turn the imprint of the previous one, by mixing materials such as earth, glass, metal, plaster, trunk’s pieces of wood. Giving birth to a structure reminiscent of that of the trunk and crystallising this notion of time and imprint on the past but also on the future."
