Le Temps Retrouvé is an exhibition about time, place, object and memory. These works of Found Art are neither sculpture nor painting, but hover in the space between. Old and new are assembled together, transforming relics and debris into pieces of treasure.

“The series Mémoires is inspired by things friends have saved for me, items I have found on my way to visit them at their homes, or during my travels with them around the city and countryside. Cast-off objects are given new life, entwined within the bonds of friendship. Like cherished souvenirs, each personal compilation is kept in its own dark walnut drawer”.

“In the works of Imprints, every piece embodies a private recollection. Rusted plates of armour lay fixed in a concrete ground, and melted beeswax heals the scars of the past. As long forgotten objects leave their mark, these memories, though altered by time, remain imprinted on my mind”.
