ALUMINATIONS

 

In "Aluminures", your common kitchen foil is turned into a baroque barrel organ, a

theatre, a stage curtain, a fleeting actor, the dazzle of a thousand lights at a party,

dancing and singing to offer a seducing mirror for the audience to look at.

Let the visual fest begin!

 

I chose to express myself without recourse to overstatement, to say with nothing, to

take advantage of chance, to make the most of the specificity of materials whose original

destination was elsewhere, to use their music, their shapes, to accept the as

one's own to the point where they appear to have been made only for that : to follow

their rules while giving the impression that each material obeys yours.
