Black waste found after the destruction of the facade of a Brussels building, the one in which the artist works, was that of his studio; frontage crumbs of which the artist collected the bits with as much precaution as if they had been pieces of meteorites that fell out of the sky. He scans fragments of them and observes them so closely that one can no longer distinguish what they really are; the projected image, which unfolds elsewhere.
Not far from here, a crystal-clear photograph where one could still feel the beating heart of this freshly caught fish; the minute that follows, he will be put back into the water, dropped off in the source after a brief moment of communion in the hand of the friend already aware that the animal runs through his fingers.
The events and the materials impose themselves on the artist. The arrangements he consequently put in place, reflect this surprise, create new connections, poetically reveal these layers of time and meaning.
Music is played on the radio while the artist is working on his piece. Pharoah Sanders plays “The Creator has a Masterplan”.
