Presence-absence of the body,
loss of its density in the digital space


Similarly, standardisation starts under our very feet, with identical – and supposedly accidental – tarmac everywhere, that breaks our relationship to the moving soil. 

The Macadam series is made up of the 7 figures of anonymous individuals. One of two sides is dressed with an asphalt membrane. Dense and impermeable, this interface between the human and the vibrations of the ground shows cracks: manholes that are a link to the back of the figures, giving the viewer a glimpse of aquatic flows.  


Digital and technological revolutions have generated a new space, the Internet, in which the human existence performs itself again. Between the physical, the human and the digital space, new boundaries are drawn. Across the screen that opens onto the digitised world, the body forgets itself, it switches off. 

The Portant  series shows the figures of 7 anonymous individuals whose bodies have lost their physical density. They’re only digitised membranes, one side colonised by screenshots which are the result of the respective codes visible on the other side. With no anchorage, they are simply hanging, voided of their physical substance.
