B, matelas, mixed media, 190 x 150 x 25 cm, 2016

 

In the case of "B", the mattress symbolizes the imprint of the intimate, and the impregnation of the memory. Thus, it links the object of everyday life to experience and emotion, combines material and immaterial. Created from multiple textures and materials, the raw and heterogeneous visual aspect of the scultpure evokes disparity and variegation. The piece turns mechanically on itself to show both sides and question the diversity created by the association.
Therefore, it symbolizes the place of otherness in our relationship
s and allows to question and reconsider the couple. How is created the transition from fusion to otherness in the love pair?
