about this work
"Gravity. The force that brings us to the ground and to respect the inertia of the world, the mystery that reveals the weight of things and consequently, their importance. As an archaeologist visiting another planet where the landscape is strangely familiar to him, I gather, organize and classify rocks. I try to understand the place well, mine and the rocks themselves, and everything else there is to know.
The act of collecting stones from a location and transporting them to another location is perhaps one of the earliest traces of civilization, when man determined a given space and therefore had the power to affect Creation.
This act carries with it the idea of belonging - and inherently memory deposited within these rocks, their minerals, mass, its characteristics, and age in the millennia that they have crossed.
My relationship with the landscape lies in wanting to build an ideal place, as an imitation of nature, with faithful relations of perfection and balance. The mysteries of the secret force acting in nature are recreated, sometimes so brutally, others so delicate and almost imperceptible, an act to understand holistically the matter of which we are formed. As a miniature of the infinite that surrounds us, mineral, liquid and sublime are organized so as to reconstruct the invisible relationships that sustain the planet in its orbit perennial."
