What other stories and images could the stone still hold?
I had already captured its surface (Misa nue) with all the marks,
crevices, lines and wrinkles. But had I really arrived at the heart
of it? No… I was still looking to unfurl this volume that is so
heavy with meaning.
The work became a research into the poetic language and
the understanding of the folded material – how to make
them visible? Small continents were forming, different blank
interspaces between every shape.
The unfolding of the stone suddenly looked like a world map.
A new world, a poetic space. Après le Big bang is a distortion,
the origin of a reverie; a cosmological travel through the vast
spaces of the stone Misa, inviting the imagination to roam freely.
