Bricks - Brick Dust series

2021
Brick dust
Variable (from 15 x 50 cm to 80 x 100cm)
Unique

The project Bricks consists of the 2 video installations La couleur de la brique (2017) and Ingahi Kama (2018), the installation Circular construction versus human body – referring to Toshikatsu Endo (2018), the publication Piles des Bricks/Piles des briques (2020), the installations and performances Piles of Bricks (2020-ongoing) and the drawing series Brick Dust (2020-ongoing).

After my first installations and performances with bricks, I made drawings on paper using the red dust that the bricks shed. While the movement of bricks reconfigures the physical, heavy and earthly space, the drawing series Brick Dust depict flying people made out of brick dust — airy, weightless and suspended in emptiness.
