    In a contemporary context of denial of the world,
    this work tries, on the contrary, to outface.

    Here, it is not about building new relationships between ideas.
    It is about finding new accesses to areas without concepts.

    The block-poems are an intersection between minimal forms and short texts. A perspective : fighting against the noise of the world.

    Each proposal is thought custom-built : meaning, dimensions, relations to the space. The block, recurrent element, makes a silence. The text, piece of the noise, is worked from the inside by the syntax and the prosody. Block and poem are in tension ; searching, when catching the objects, a point where the catch fails.

    There should be no question of themes, topics, opinions ; but a concern. Often at the scale of a body, the block is a call from the hollow. It is about an encounter. The object does not impose anything ; it has to make exist.

    Une antinomie : les propositions dans l'espace sont formulées comme un tout, mais possèdent en elles une fracture : un point d'irréconciliable entre texte et cadre –l'un ne commente pas l'autre, ils ne sont, respectivement, ni sous-titre, ni soutien.

    Et c'est dans l'intimité de l'œuvre que l'on peut en faire l'expérience : s'approcher –physiquement ; engager son corps ; trouver ce point où la faille se rend sensible et intelligible. Le travail de la composition a été mis au service de cette rencontre ; en attente d'un usager désirant.

    L'économie des moyens construit le vide nécessaire pour s'avancer ; c'est aussi un parti pris contre le bruit du monde, le clinquant : faire silence. Les œuvres proposées travaillent avec la multiplicité des propositions contemporaines et cherchent la possibilité, dans l'hétérogène, d'un espace.
