Since 2013, I have started a long-term series called Knife, … then I add the name of the city for which I created it, as if to mark a place or a belonging. Like a ritual object, each knife is defined by its ability to open, pierce, cut, stab … a wall. Scrupulously chosen, the materials evoke the history of a place, or relate to certain emotions that it can induce. The Knife,… embody a gesture that tries to pierce an infection or to open other horizons. C.L.
