WAITING

In this apartment room under construction, with cold and impersonal light, an hybrid woman – half body, half brick – is dressed in a leather jacket but has no face. Massive and solid, in the middle of spatial landmarks that are reconstructed or deconstructed, she stands up, with her perfectly manicured hands. Fantasized and ghostly woman, she continues to fulfill her role in the midst of chaos.

Living body and stone sculpture, she grants herself a moment of waiting and rest, after the fatigue of building home and self.

Through the installation of an allegorical staging where the subject is metamorphosed with humour, WAITING evokes a spatial and existential condition at the same time.
