- Rewind - Fastorward - Memories / The Holy Familly
"The family, like the image, is a mirror that shows us a reflection of our vision of reality transformed. In what proportion is the question ?
Life is not a DVD. Neither rewinding, nor fast-forwarding or skipping certain events are possible.
The family gives us an image. It sees us, makes us in his image. This image, to create our family of images, we deconstruct it.
Neither nostalgia nor backwardness, on the contrary, these images are a leverage point to move ahead. The Holy Family is a scraping and rubbing of the memory, a bit like Max Ernst scraping pieces of wood with his HB lead and then suddenly new images emerge. Are these images from the simple past or the future anterior or a simple contemplation of this bygone time ?"
In the future, I would like to make an installation to be placed in a room. It also includes a video in progress.
