On the Thread
Marked by the discovery of "vanities" in a museum when I was still a child.
Between strength and fragility, life impulse of the body, beauty and fatality.
The strong and fragile body. Essential, without blush, he is a storyteller, but don't lie to us.
« Vanitas vanitatum omnia vanitas »
"Vanity of vanities, all is vanity"
"You are dust and you will return to dust"
Questioning the human being in his space, his corporeality.
The location of the photographs already plays on several strata.
It is in the former municipal nautical centre of Istres (the Pyramid) which will be transformed by the artist Daniel Buren, and now it's a dojo. It is in this space that the game began.
The strong and fragile body, temple of all our vanities, in a society where living young becomes an obsession.
A poetic distancing as a hope of acceptance of the inevitable.
On the thread, driven by the desire to reveal a certain poetry.
Echoing the video Ashes To Ashes as another window on these questions, an extension.
