June 2015 - Maentler Biarritz, France.

Make something of the past. What do you do with your constituent memories ? 14 is a “gestalt“ experience on the influence of family history. Formal researches and extra-narrative realities are mediums to explore the affect, without urgency, nostalgia or contestation constituting a transitory area where situations act as interfaces of memory, where the circle acts as an allegorical pattern. The artist does not invite to elucidate these relations but to study a non-immediate link which takes effect in a posteriority. 14 is the number of the street where the artist’s grandparents lived (rue Broquedis, Biarritz - 1960 to 1990), this project was presented in a private residence , just the other side of the street.

Faire matière d’un passé. Que fait-on de ses éléments de mémoire constituant ? 14 est une expérience “gestalt“ sur l'influence de l'histoire familiale. Recherches formelles et réalités extra-narratives sont des supports qui explorent l’affect, sans urgence, sans nostalgie ni contestation constituant une aire transitoire où les situations agissent tels des interfaces à la mémoire, où le cercle agit tel un motif allégorique. L’artiste n’invite pas à élucider ces relations mais à étudier un rapport non immédiat qui prend effet dans une postériorité. 14 est le numéro de la rue où vivaient les grands-parents de l’artiste (rue Broquedis, Biarritz - 1960 à 1990), ce projet y fut présenté juste en face, dans une résidence privée.
