During the first lockdown, which surprised us all, I felt the need to exchange and collaborate even more in my artistic practice in order to experiment with other mediums and to confront myself with other visions. So I suggested around me, to friends who were photographers, sculptors and painters if they had projects to share.
It is within this framework that we realized in collaboration with Nomades Studio: Rivage. At that time, and even now, we have a craving to travel or simply to be somewhere else. Natacha Roché and Mathieu Lodin from Nomades Studio then sent me a series of silver photos that they had taken on the Breton coast, not far from where they are. I then took one of their images and I pursued this landscape and painted what we didn’t see, and which is probably not like that by the way.
But whatever, it was a question of drawing an imaginary from elsewhere, of not doing it alone, but together. Rivage is also this promenade by the sea.
