Scrubland Action

A canvas is presented from the series Mes ciels…oh pardon mes cieux ! (‘My Skies… I Mean, My Heavens!’), consisting of recovered landscape paintings of southern France (lavender field, farmhouse, seascape…) in which the landscape portion is in monochrome. A chat is initiated, demonstrating the interaction, synchronicity, and continuity between Avant-garde and Folklore. The demonstration is supported by videos treating the following themes:
- Dance
- Abstraction
- Rupture
- Background/Foreground
- Newness
- Expired and mental states…
