« The Domestic Life » présente une série d'œuvres éphémères constituée d'objets du quotidien: vaisselles, fromages, fleurs, graines, et autres.
À travers ce travail, j'interroge le banal avec humour et explore comment la créativité peut révéler les possibles dans un réel… trop réel.

Tissue Books
Des livres cultes trouvés dans la rue—dont les titres semblent crier la tristesse de leur abandon dans l’espace urbain—deviennent boîtes à mouchoirs.
Le livre contient un mouchoir en tissu brodée d’une phrase épargnée: le dernier vestige de ses pages.
Des graines sont utilisées pour l’ornementation.

Pièce unique, fait à la maison

Papier cadeau
"J’ai fabriqué du papier cadeau à partir des pages découpées, afin que le Tissue Book (la boîte à mouchoirs) soit emballé dans ses propres pages. Laissant le choix à son propriétaire de jeter ou non le contenu du livre."

* Uniquement disponible en librairie.
Étant donné que les pièces sont très fragiles, elles sont disponibles uniquement en retrait en librairie.
Une fois votre commande est prête à être retirée, nous vous enverrons un mail de confirmation. 
Si vous souhaitez une livraison par transporteur, veuillez nous contacter par mail.

« The Domestic Life » gathers ephemeral works made from everyday items: Dishes, cheese, flowers, seeds…you name it.
Through this work, I question the mundane with humor, and explore how creativity can reveal the possibles in the real— oh too real.

Tissue Books
Cult castoff books, found in the street— whose sad titles seem to mourn their abandoned in the urban space—become tissue boxes.
Inside the Tissue Book, a fabric handkerchief is embroidered with a spared sentence: the last vestige from its pages.

Unique piece, Homemade

Wrapping paper
The book is wrapped inside a cutout of its own pages, turned into wrapping paper.
Leaving to the owner the choice of keeping or not the contents of the books.

* Only available for pick-up at the bookshop.
Since the pieces are very fragile, they are only available for pick-up in our bookshop in Paris.
Once your order is ready, we will send you a confirmation email.
