Slates series

2020 - 2021

Dibon and white soft pastel

The Slates reproduce in soft white pastel drawing on blackboards the "motif" of the scaffolding used for a series of monumental works (Africa under construction,Marhaban). The blackboard, like a reminiscence of the artist's school memories, but also like a more frontal reference to the transmission of knowledge that “scaffolds” our future. The blackboard as if nothing could be inscribed on it except the evanescent whiteness of a chalk so easily erasable, like a blank surface in opposition to the white page, a surface where desires and possibilities come to be scaffolded .
