8 sets of photographs

7 natures mortes (reliques)

6 black and white photographs on fiber based paper
180 x120 cm each

In the early 1990s, my work consisted in shooting meal left-overs.  The triviality of the models avoided any assumption that they could be the subject of it.

The series then entitled « 7 still lifes » made up of 6 large size photographs a smaller seventh one, dates from that time.

Following an exhibition, the photographs were stored in a damp place. They were showing some mouldy stains and orangey haloes appeared that were gradually erasing the picture.

This destructive process altered the status and subject of the photographs : they have become relics.
