artist-in-residence at Les Aftis, Algeria 2009
production: Chrysalide (Alger) & Gertrude II (Lyon), résidency Les Aftis (Jijel)
In Small Kabylia, along the road, large stains of white paint have been projected on the rocks by the public utility to insure the motorists’ safety.
Between cave painting and action painting created by immediate gesture, the stains leave their mark and
« make signs ».
They form one big signage piece that is quite pictorial; a musical score composed of half-notes that come one a er another as the journey goes on. Here, the medium is both a display panel and an easel.
