Artist's Description

A double homage :
1) to Eluard with the poem “Oeil de Sourd” (Capitale de la douleur) – presented to an exhibition at The Hype Gallery, in Palais de Tokyo, Paris.
This “collage” uses a serie of polaroïds & “Faux-polaroïds” for another exhibition : Polarama, Lancaster, UK.
2) to “Dorian Grey’s Portrait”…

*
A serie of selfportraits – polaroids – & all changes like a serie of masks… – layers of mine… Always the same and the always changeable…


in back of the faux-polaroid this poem of Eluard :

Oeil de Sourd

Faites mon portrait.
Il se modifiera pour remplir tous les vides.
Faites mon portrait sans bruit, seul le silence,
A moins que – s’il – sauf – excepté –
Je ne vous entends pas.

Il s’agit, il ne s’agit plus.
Je voudrais ressembler –
Fâcheuse coïncidence, entre autres grandes affaires.
Sans fatigue, têtes nouées
Aux mains de mon activité.
