à disparaître 2013

Drawings. 20x20cm, graphite on paper

The title is taken from Roland Barthes' Mythologies, in which to disappear is one of the four movements of the Tour de France.

"To disappear is a poetic event that illustrates voluntary solitude..."

"Natural phenomena and areas personified, because people measure their strength with them, because, as in all heroic poem, the struggle must be between equal forces: man thus becomes nature and nature becomes human. The slopes are evil, they are reduced to severe or unbearable slopes..."

Roland Barthes
