Human history unrolls its red thread between past and present, and raises questions about an uncertain future, a sometimes grotesque and often brutal way. The visitor is thus the mirror placed his own humanity, his projections and prejudices about what constitutes our contemporary society and its conflicts.
Pain stands side by side with humor, which recalls the complexity of our existence but also the imperishable link with the other, the nature, the earth. The works, sometimes classical sometimes eccentric, so explore the interactions between the spiritual and material world and provide the visitor with introspection.
Although the vision is bleak, she is full of hope. She calls us to hold our breath during the time of an artistic walk to perhaps be able to blow out better afterwards.
FOREVER viewing time passing ironically, just as our visions of eternity, the ideals are dictations and the inability to stop the course of history, our infinitesimal history, in respect of a universality that is more mysterious every day.Our passage on this earth just that for-never, with a need to saturate themselves with strong impressions to forget the endpoint?Or on the contrary we have forgotten that we are here “forever” will be detached from all that seems to us essential in the mass trivialities that make up our everyday life?
