Extra Muros chapter 1 Bastion 23 Art Center (2005),
galvanized steel tubes and brackets, 100 m²
Chapter 1 takes the Bastion 23 as its point of departure. This building complex is an archetypal testimony of the Casbah of Algiers. By installing a monumental and ephemeral sculpture, I wanted to interrogate the memory of this place. Scaffoldings, which have an exceptional narrative dimension, allowed me to partially underline elements and suggest numerous interpretative possibilities. Emotional charge is reinforced by the transitory atmosphere created by the scaffolding. Therefore, the visitor is highly expected, highly desired.
