construction I, charcoal and pencil on cardboard, 2.70m x 2.40m, artist's collection

I was invited in 1994 by a gallery to exhibit in Martigues. The gallery was run by artist-books publishers called Collodion.

I created a very minimal installation, from drawings and sketches made in the village of Martigues  for a month.  

My idea was to use the shapes I had extracted from many drawings of the area,  and get them to interact with the gallery space.

All work was made with charcoal on paper, I used some metal poles to create a sense of line or break up in the space of the gallery.

Some of the drawings were made on the wooden walls of the gallery.

A catalogue was published about this exhibition using silkscreen and offset.
