through carbon paper

This is a series of installation works done on or with carbon paper, on the subject of the identity of an uprooted person.  

 

Thanks to the process it enables, the carbon paper allows to express an absence because you do not draw on that paper, you erase its ink. All that is visible is not there.

 

Some works are realized from stories of people or photographies representing objects that they miss. Other works are produced by accumulation of traces of carbon on drawing paper until there is no more ink. These are ashes of memories.
