Diary stones

Diary stones
Installation – Dimensions : 12 x (91 x 61 x 5 cm)

For the last ten years, Emmanuelle Michaux has kept a diary. In 2015, she collects stones on the path featured in her film les anonymes.

This time, there is no place for film and the project concentrates solely on text and object. A year in the life of the artist takes the form of 365 pebbles and 365 cards on which are written extracts from her diary, placed in twelve display cases.

The strong narrative of this work represents our struggle with our inability to conceive sustainability when faced with the vacuity of images.
