Objects, wood, glass and gouache on paper, Stuttgart Germany

 The main theme around this work was the Object. Being interested by space had led me to think of the object how does it work? 

I selected objetcs that had a link to water, umbrella, jug, wellies, hat etc. I drew each side of them top and bottom. In french I called it "L'abécédaire du parfait petit sculpteur", the alphabet book for sculptors. I started the work by imagining a space as a giant playground were the viewers could interact with each piece and create their own installation. 

The work took me 2 years to complete, all the boxes were made out of wood, that I crafted myself, and the paintings and drawings inside were either made in gouache or pencil. I made 60 pieces in total. The exhibition travelled from Aix-en-Provence to Germany in Stuttgart.
