Remembrance Stand, 2008

Coat Stand, coat hanger (15), drawing and collage on paper, dimension variable,
First showed in Galerie La Friche Marseille/France, 2009

Concept : I believe that in the time process, personal memories becoming a residual, but standing (living) with the individual as a dressing on their body in everyday life. All pieces of our experience, of remembrance, preserved and confined in the our private room(place)- which is intimate, personal for the individual.

With this work I want to force you to gaze at the immobile, the minimal and unmoving object in order to emphasise that which is unchanging as opposed to that which is moving and ephemeral.
