Creating for me, it is like living twice and is the best therapy to face stress at uncertain times !
The arrival of Covid 19 plunged the world into an unprecedented crisis time ! Nobody expected such situation : isolated from the others
and losing our bearings, we had to reinvent our lives facing the virulence of the virus and his numerous unknown consequences !
At the beginning of the pandemic when the virus was spreading rapidly across the different continents from Asia to Europe, I remember public attention was riveted on USA ! How will the most’s world powerful economy react to the upcoming scourge ?
This was the best way to undertake an artistic project I had in mind for a while ! It will match perfectly what we gonna live for a while :
turning into ourselves !
I achieved my “lovely states”, an Usa map using my favorite media support : recycled coffee capsules. I spent a lot of time around this project, using more 300 aluminum capsules including numerous hand-cuttings assemblies. I took me a lot of patience and resilience to get over it but those qualities have never made so much sense at the current time !!
