Since 2013, Laquet has started a long-term series called Knife, … then she adds the name of the city for which she 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.
