La Têt
In collaboration with Martine Viale
We stand motionless facing each other on both sides of the river, at the boundary of the water. Our spread arms confirm the direction from which the water comes and to which side it flows. Continue reading

As a friendly gesture to Hiroomi Horiuchi,
I walked and recorded the first hour of the route
from my home in Maumont, Hautefort, France
to his home in Kichijōji, Musashino, Tokyo, Japan. Continue reading

Night-time



For three days, the studio was open to the public from 11:00 to 19:00.
This means the artworks were left alone sixteen hours a day .
With no one around, the works have no need to interact,
they are simply objects without meaning, like any other. Continue reading

I am here.
I call a friend and she answers the call.
Via a video connection I lead her through the scenery

The continuous exchange of the live sounds over the phone allowed for immediate feedback and reaction.

Both recordings were later superimposed in the editing process, retaining their stereo structure,
making them part of the same sound space.

Spill (2021)

At the Río Segura I filled a glass with water, and  I walked up the mountain.
I stopped at a spot from where I had a clear view at the valley and the river below.
With the glass in my hand, I bent down slowly and repeatedly,
synchronised with the rhythm of my breathing.
With each bending movement, water spilled from the glass onto the ground.
The work was finished when the glass was empty.
