Setting the time of a spot which is not explicitly formulated.
Signs in chrome and black.
The remembrance of a landscape lived on a periphery.
An abandoned, unique detail.
Observed somewhere else, reactivated here.
A city one doesn’t know and in which one likes to get lost.
A distance.
Going from point A to point B.
Exotic species.
The image of a moving geography.
A matter and a practice linked to a place.
A point set in time.
La Chapelle.
Scanning reality is also painting the landscape.
A close, intimate and interior environment.
And the shadow, maybe, of a plant on the section of a wall.
A local, ordinary, almost trite landscape.
On each side of the Atlantic.
An architectural element, taken here, then reinterpreted somewhere else. Found, rearranged objects.
A precise point in Flanders.
Existing places, or not.
Berlin or somewhere else in the Parisian suburb.
A mediterranean landscape, in Sicily.
The North of France, the parking lot of a supermarket.
(Ideal) Geography is the evocation of an informal, fragmented landscape. Postcards we are sent and that we display on a fridge.
