Histoires ordinaires

Livre d'artiste, leporello. 

Textes et photographies, 96 pages, 13.5 x 10,5 cm

 

Les histoires ordinaires ont toutes eu lieu à Anvers. Enfin non, pas toutes. Certaines se sont passées en Italie, d'autres dans le Jura suisse ou à Bruxelles. Et au fond, qu'importe l'endroit? Comme me l'avait dit un Mexicain établi au Caire, "Tutto il mondo e paese.". Que ce soit ici ou ailleurs, les histoires ordinaires sont à peu près les mêmes partout.

Artist book. Leporello. 

Texts (short stories) and photographs. 96 pages, 13,5 x 10,5 cm

I started this project in Belgium in 2014 and processed it in other socio cultural contexts. The result is a collection of short stories, answering in an intimate and personal way to contemporary issues concerning society, identity and position. 

 

Extract:  

" I do not know what time it was that March 8th . I was writing , sitting at my desk in the room which would still be my room, as well as my studio for twenty-three days . I had been here for sixty-two days. During this time, I had understood: 

 

that some of the big stones which were put randomly on the ground of the empty field that I could see from my window were the remains of gravestones. 

that among these gravestones, there was one that was engraved "Famille Masquelier".
