These sculptures, intended as Memorials, have their shapes dictated by the narrative from the daguer-reotype used to create them. These Daguerreotype (ancestor of the film for analog camera) were taken between and during the first and second World War.
From landscapes to trenches, archite-cture to family, each of these images are originals which were shot by the great grand father of the artist.
The cross (1) is composed of Daguerotypes on War with a destroyed church, trenches, war ships; while “the bridge” about the technology transition shows old cars. (3) “cabane” fixed on top of a tree shows landscape and sea; while (4) the triangle acts as a family tree with pictures of weddings & family réunion.
This mix of contemporary materials & ancient technologies, that once were a revolution, creates an interesting link between the past & present imagery.
Like small novels, each one of these memorials tells its own story.
