Introduction

When I’m designing, I incorporate personal documents, newspaper articles, books and technology into my working files. I associate them, mixing and glueing them. The broadcast can be an audio or visual one. The whole thing forms a timeless, never fixed and multi-versions installation. The elements contained in the arrangement move from one research to another. It is an eternal beginning, transformation, death, and rebirth. It is part of a nomadic thinking, of a concept of language that sticks to my own life. Only the document memorises with or without sound.

A file containing a stock of pictures of planets,

a microphone, a book about Aby Warburg life,

an anatomical Venus, an unknown skull,

the picture of a cave, their associations.

My daughter’s face - a musician / poet nicknamed "The Plastic Strawberries Need Stitches", she took part in the "Hamadryan” performance presented at Musée Félicien Rops in Namur. It is a "face" that moves and changes. Her lives settle and move out of me. She is a woman evolving by 300°.

I have found these hearts from the Boyadjian collection in the reserve of the Museum of Louvain-la-Neuve. I have included them in various experiments : Photos, videos, performance…. When I touched these hearts, I was touching rebirths, beats, loves. My body has retained the vision of this picture, and ever since a kind of excrescence has grown in myself. I have many hearts, many lives.

Hannah Arendt’s writings have been particularly interesting to me from the point of view of human thought, they helped me follow a thought of life that clung closely to my art. Almost everyday, her works are present in what I’m experiencing and what I’m living. "Concept of Love", as this experience might be titled is focused on her thesis on the "Concept of love in Augustine." This approach is "one" of the vision of her thought: I’m enclosing in it mutation, transmission, and renewed beginnings. A sound design.

I often take pictures of my working space where the movement of a thought X is activating. Perhaps it is a visualisation of any questioning about life and art?
