Outer Limits

Crystal In Sight, 2011

 
 

Focused on how the material is shaped by its environment, this project initiates a temporality in slow motion, and a contemplation which invites to an outer space.

The materials implemented are reduced to the essential and are characteriazed by a minimal aspect. However, few sheets of tracing paper folded and placed on the ground, wool fibers, or even a black and satin foamboard, appear to be supports of perceptive experiences : identity, ability and solidity become ambiguous. By my interaction with the support I try to accomplish the tiniest gesture possible. It resides on an attentive look on the materials, which remain almost unchanged: only a positionning in space, an apprehension of distances and movements, or a blow which touch the support without adding or removing anything from it. This search of saving gesture questions the mode of existence and the limit of this object material which become a work of art.

Several points of views are neccessary to apprehend the same piece, which can only be animated in the move of the spectator. The environment, and how our surroundings are acting upon our perception of art, are essential to my work; I often think that they make up a part of the work itself. The onlooker absorb as much as he is absorbed.

Installation with wool fibers and A0 sheet of transfering paper.
Multiple points of view are proposed to apprehend the same piece, which can only be animated by the move of the spectator. From far, a coloredgrey spot is visible. It’s vanishing while getting closer. This perceptive experience take places with an aware bond.
