Since 1977

Since 1977, I have written more than 300 000 kilometers of words, that is to say put end to end, one way trip from Earth to the Moon. Or a second to light for this trip. A second light words in 30 years, some 3 billion signs.

Extend memory beyond the subjects, the circumstances of the biography.
Preserve, pack, glue, tie, these lined notebooks, these typed sheets
On archaic typewriters. These yellowed photos, letters, diaries, photocopies, cigarette packets, scraps of paper scrawled, no words, sections cut, removed, stolen, borrowed, never returned, in barns, abandoned houses in the dustbin of history.

Archive leftovers, scraps, traces, layers, residues lived abstract events out of context, removed from oblivion, the destruction by the physical operation reordering documents in another form; archaeological physical operation .

COMPILATION Heterogeneity of SIGNS
This is to give to searchers of the future the possibility to detect, discover debris, bits of history, biographies of these texts and associated images, these writings and cries of revolt of leaflets, these poems, these signs once pure, ready-made memory senseless relics removed in time, unstable fragments and eternal poor and precious as any archaeological fragment.


 Monument of paper, stamps , labels , tickets, invitation cards , words leave on the door , photos - warder , self portraits , sketches and studies in charcoal, pencil, with a ballpoint pen , scripts, texts sing for radio and television.

 ARCHIVES anachronistic of the TIME
All these are in the form of newspapers , pictures, video, windows , consisting of random accumulation of documents, photo albums, journals packages tied and coated edges. DIRECTORY semiotic  of TRACE 

Note the thickness of certain documents, by dint of being taken and retaken , glue and glued on canvas
various media . Note also overlays that create distance , monochrome with bursts of color, colorized copies by hand , print on transparencies, official documents and letters of insult. 

It is reinventing the Codex. Before that, the archives were isolating them within crates, cartons, crammed into folders has straps and Codex arises outdoors , serial , showing its contents never identical and layers of history . 

Today , here are the " memory - portraits " , notebooks objects, objouets boxes , imaginary books, cards, accumulated , these sketchbooks , photo albums without these dateswhere label temporarily. 

We can move between these stelae memory, these poses albums on writing cases , these books flick . But we will not see everything, because there are many documents , this is just the Heart of accumulation on the walls collages, " vitrin'arts " originals before printing.

 Pixelated videographic SEQUENCE
 It is in every sense of the term hermetic . This is a more or less complete picture of the person through the history of the time. It is something that has a little more chance to pass the course of time. It's random posthumously.
If you look , you casks that you turn around writing desks , while the most insignificant becomes important , chance becomes requires , subjectivity becomes objective , the Archive has a chance of survival Viewers little désenfouir and once buried , remember, be the archaeologist dig this field , farm open or freezes time with glue, ink, tape, and the weak or archive delivers his message after the test of time .Architecture in this museal space, Archive Random gives testimony , a new light on the memory in which each project their memories.

I refer to the model of archeology which aims to analyze and reconstruct intellectually human societies of the past, focuses on the history, anthropology, ecology, science and the arts, and takes into account the level "empirical objective " of elements as varied as technology and their association, then all the equipment up to the level of constitution with the operating systems of natural resources, leading to adaptation and environmental change.

Model also studied systems of location, distribution and organization on the remains and traces furniture and buildings, without neglecting the so-called artistic productions.

Archaeology which finally aims at a theoretical level, to define the elements of a scientific understanding of social structures and various ideological representations to define and interpret historical changes and the spatial dynamics of culture.
