The below work is inspired by a series of pictures taken on the site “Les grands voisins”, Paris. The word “dé-composer” (to de-compose) painted on the wall relates indirectly to the questionable opposition between resilience and vulnerability. A silhouette recalls Levinas’ concept of alterity. A blue canvas curiously hanging, brings us back to the Sudanese refugees photographed by Claude Iverné (*). At D0, the blue canvas and the word “dé-composer” are closely linked and reinforce each other. At D+, both of them darken, leaving the field free to the silhouette. The two windows are in continuity with this work. They question the contribution of our urban environment to a better well-living. More to read here and here.
