A period of learning through an abundance of works on paper, and a period where the relationship between image and text is problematized through infinite juxtapositions. Graphic and linguistic symbols are gathered to create space of unmaking. In the series titled coupe – J. S., on the left hand side there is a list of indefinable signs, and on the right, on a flat Prussian blue background, sentences extracted from Joseph Stalin’s writings can be found. Do these fragments work against the meaning attributed to them? The result is a questioning of the double relationship between language (speaking) and painting (seeing) that subsequent works will further explore.
