WELCOME TO BIG DEAL N04!
“Orientations are not constant but change according to temporary vegetation, occupations and precipitation.There is no visual model for points of reference that would make them interchangeable and unite them in an inertial class assignable to an immobile outside observer. On the contrary, they are tied to any number of observers, who may be qualified as “monads” but are instead nomads entertainingtactile relations among themselves. The interlinkages do not imply an ambient space in which the multiplicity would be immersed and which would make distances invariant : rather, they are constituted according to ordered differences that give rise to intrinsic variations in the division of a single distance.”
From A Thousand Plateaus

Featuring film and photography work by artists :
Since 2009, I work on my own body, probably by narcissism, but not only.
The self-portraiture is a dear theme for the artists from all the times, as the infernal couple Eros and Thanatos. I obeyed like the rest of humanity to impulses, cradled between sex and death: this “Ordinary Madness”, this headlong who drives us to live and irremediably to die.
This series “SMƟKe” grew out of a sad and difficult period, the desire to torment my body to feel it live, and see it breathe: inspire / expire and repeat it until the Death. Cigarette smoke (or drugs smoke …) is a source of pleasure and eroticism for me but also a symbol of irristible death pulsion (no no, my message isn’t “Smoking kills”, this message is pathetic, and i let you understand why …)
Maybe these instincts are stronger to me than in my congeners and perhaps Sex and Death aren’t so foreign to me. . . certainly because i agree with the absurdity of my life!
