At Musée des Augustins, I’m interested in the painting Les Quatre fonctions du capitoulat painted by Arnaut Arnaut by assembling the petticoats of women using the allegorical figure of the circle. The fabrics assemble, crumple, become alive.

In the space of the Reservoir, the filamentary shapes of the leather straps form drips, a fluid and bright material fleeing from the iron hooks and which solidifies on contact with the air. The spontaneous invasion of an abandoned space, the moving matter adapts to its environment.
