"DES POTENTIELS DU PAYSAGE". are sets seeking a dialogue in space between useful forms and plastic forms. A structural form with a neutral invoice contains or supports a set of so-called useful objects which then fall into a category of representation. The ambiguity that arises here brings out multiple changes in the status of forms. The support sculpture evokes the base, the shelf or the console, and stages sets representing different units of measurement (the glove = the hand, the sleeve of the sweatshirt = the cubit, the basketball = the foot). Inherited from ancient Greek society, these units represented by worn contemporary objects advance the idea of ​​a possible historical connection.

Under the effect of an installation gesture borrowed from performance, these deposited objects expose plastic qualities evocative of stories. The duvet or the T-shirt becomes a Greek drape, the water bottle a fountain... Thus producing a repertoire of artisanal, industrial or technological advances connected to its history. These displays evoke our daily gestures combining temporal references and manufacturers of moving landscapes. Revealing the needs for adaptability, change and evolution of our contemporary societies.
