LUMEN 

Looking at the horizon in search of images, from darkness are born bodies, fragmented, slippery, multiplying like a contagious ritual. The shapes are interwoven, but they do not belong to anyone, or not yet; a confusion, a chain, a link that is emerging. an abandoned, not a chosen one. Something sacred, something carnal is evoked, even through the monochrome that gradually bathes the bodies and reveals them. Both entwined and abandoned, these bodies reflect the fact that when something is made manifest it can no longer be ignored. These figures suddenly inhabit space, occupy it, invade it, seize the air, captivate the gaze, reflect the light and blind the voyeur, plunging them into an infinite whiteness.  

 

From one world to another, from one infinite to another, from black to white, the piece offers more than a retinal experience. It is a voyage where our hopes, our fantasies, our fears, our human condition arises. It does not reflect the Western obsession with dualism, with the binaries of heaven and hell, the winner and the vanquished. On the contrary, it abolishes distances, limits and borders in order to clearly underline that we have the right to be seen, because we are all here present and alive.
