Pigeons, They Make Up the Beehive
Mention Très bien
Every city is the unique work of its inhabitants and, paradoxically, it concerns every one of them in a different way. In my opinion, in order to solve the apparent contradiction between intimacy and urbanity, the appropriation of space, both material and mental, is necessary. Only then can urban wandering be experienced as a real sensory experience.
Through this installation, I invite visitors to live my personal experience of space, horizontal and vertical, contemplative and obsessive. As Jean-Christophe Bailly put it, “Each city has its own slang and has, within itself, a clandestine city that pierces it in scattered meshes whose bare thread the stroller puts back together.”
