"Playing with the idea of draft work taking shape, coming to life and materializing, the proposed work, À PEINE VIENT-ELLE DE NAÎTRE…, takes hold of the installation space as if it were taking flight. First on the wall – as two-dimensional space - the elements composing the work come forth and tell their tale. Further away, the few sentences seem to get away from this white surface to conquer the space facing it, thus becoming three-dimensional.
Five sentences, seemingly handwritten, run up the wall, cling to it, leave it and fly away. Text becomes material pretext and the letters that shape it are nothing more than a trace that spins in space, evoking suspended matter. Five sentences are repeated over and over, one after the other, spinning into a core, a unit, an image of creation. Five simple sentences. Five sentences that tell the story of creation."
CONVERSATION with the ARTIST, August 24, 2009
As a production and research space, Atelier Silex is a place that promotes the idea of free contemporary artistic creation, that benefits from sustained support. Not only devoted to sculpture anymore, in the traditional sense, Atelier Silex has become a space that is receptive to a form of blooming creativity, one that goes well beyond this discipline. By allowing for invention and artistic encounters, in a context where imagination explodes and expands, Atelier Silex has become a place of pure creation.
Creation is thus at the heart of this project, whether in terms of the action required to put it together or to organize a thing that did not exist before or simply of the intention that precedes action, the story that is told here reveals the premises of an emerging creation."

The steel words were handwritten by the artist, directly onto a table, then reproduced into steel.
