2011 Et le parc comme tout le reste était désert / And the gardens as anything else were deserted

Installation view, Swissart Award, Basel(CH), 2011

I made this installation especially for the show Swissart Award: It consisted of ; three paintings shown on walls painted in black,  two sculptures in scale 1:1 together with a text inspired from the movie Last Year in Marienbad written on the wall and a fourth painting.

Yet, they were those walls surrounding me,
united, smooth, dark-colored
Yet, they were those walls and the silence (pause)

Empty galleries, stairs, paintings in dark colors,
False doors, false columns, false outputs

…And the gardens as anything else, were deserted (silence)
