Originally named “Sitting-Dying” , A.sis. reduces the scope of duties of chairs, their movement, their life…
Suggesting they are no longer a singular piece of furniture, but a sculpture of their own, Amine Eon Amharech gives them a soul and conveys an original idea. Hence the use of natural marble, often a sign of luxury and wealth, is here conceived as a finished material related to solitude, austerity, peace and wholeness. The marble marks the idea of “disappearance” as opposed to “abstraction”. A concept of space, ‘destitute’.
The line is straight, as the ultimate denouement. Untied from any accessory or ornament, since the single line or point, are at the essential base and result of all analysis.
Echoing A. SIS. in the book room of L’Eclaireur Marais Shop at Sévigne Street, the walls reflect photographs of Charlotte Ballesteros + Hubert Marot as a rhythmical landscape: expectance, shifting, motion, freeze frame… time stretches, bending itself, and fading into a concept of a wire stretched through time and space.
Through these urban or natural landscapes, altered by the hand of man or left untouched, the photos re-invent “land art” where the body surfaced, what man does to nature , Nature reflects back to him. The line becomes the “base minimum” of an impalpable infinity, thus generating a whole field of symbolic and spiritual.
