Galerie Atelier 40 - Paris

September 20th to October 12th, 2012

Writing and/or sign, it represents the most advanced level of the human spirit ... Dostoyevsky or Barbey d'Aurevilly. Material of painting and drawing, it is on the most primary level, fluid and delicate primary source, which we can impose.

In his staging, the artist dips the dancing bodies in perpetual motion and transcribes them through an emotional script with an infinite alphabet. And inversely, he also puts himself in motion in front of the immobile model.
