I am visual artist originating from France – living and actively working in both Estonia and Finland. The way numbers interest me here is the arbitrary nature of their shape and how they stand from themselves: out of any symbolic or meaning.
ReCOLLAGES (2016-2019), an ongoing series of screen shots featuring open internet windows arranged online after some famous modern and postmodern collages. The present selection of 6 for Wake Up Screaming are made after wonderful pieces from Kurt Schwitters and Raoul Hausmann, using numbers not as signs but for their abstract quality and graphic value.
A bit more about the series: it explores both the diversity of sources found on the Internet and the dematerialization of image in the digital era -where boundaries between photography, painting and drawing become blurred and finally irrelevant. ReCOLLAGES also reconsiders the validity of boundaries distinguishing amateur, art and professional productions; and correlates an increasingly easy access to pictures with the increase of legal restrictions of use.
