1:1 – Château de Chimay
At the Chimay Castle, a castle that has been run by the same family for 1,000 years, I mapped out two routes that departed from a flag that stood in the courtyard, depicting the colors of the sunrise of a day just before the opening of the exhibition. From there you could visit the “maison des artistes” or the castle itself. In the “maison des artistes” I showed the “60 Journees d’été” series in dialogue with two works by Marthe Wery as I had already done in the Raveel Museum. In the castle itself, I dug deeper and deeper into time in a number of works. This started with two 1:1 drawings of classified trees found in the domain of the castle. In the next room I showed 2 wax sculptures that are exact replicas of pieces of the surface of mont Sainte Victoire in Aix en Provence. On two tables in the next room I printed 2 pictures of the Hubble telescope that at first glance have the drawing of marble but are images of parts of the universe. In the beautiful little theater, a copy of the theater in Fontainebleau, I left the documentary nature of the previous images and relied on photos I found on Google for a series of little works that were always divided into 2 plans. In the first and second scene of the stage, I hung two paintings based on a found photo “Sankt Gilgen en éte”.
