EX SISTERE // EXPOSE TO EXIST
In situ installation of jute rope, wood, cardboard, copper wire, mooring buoys, variable dimensions, 2019.
In this installation I try to implement a process of appearance of the ineluctable movement of transgression through a porous and mobile suspension. The border disappears between the work and the spectator and no longer erects itself as a line of demarcation which isolates and encloses but becomes a place of passage and opening where there is a circulation, one or more possible encounters with oneself or others. We are faced with this need defined by Tillich to “live and think of the border as a tension between two worlds, two areas that must be put into dialogue and communication. »The installation, in the form of a random path or a multiple path, is strewn with pitfalls and obstacles. The unstable ground or the liquid element accentuates this impression of disorientation. The work is not understood as a simple walk of artistic convenience or a playful space but as an initiatory journey leading to an awareness: The difficulty to migrate, to leave, to operate a radical and often irreversible change. It also acts to show that the limits imposed or accepted are passable, penetrable and moving. the hope of a renewal through a form in the making, a path where the shapeless induced by the gesture of the visitor refers to the unprecedented and to surpassing oneself. To move to be able to live. Exposing yourself to exist! The borders are not located at the end of a process of life but at the center of each being as here inside the work.
