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.
