Under the Clouds is an object viewed through the filter of a painting, a sculpture playing with the distorted perspectives of drawing, a superposition of views inviting the viewer to stand back, to observe the city from a distance. / / / / / / / Flattened against a wall, under glass, the child’s play mat takes on the image of a stereotypical urban space, clean, well-defined and controlled. Playing with its quality as a utilitarian object whilst expressing a message, the mat is read through white geometrical shapes found on Persian carpets to represent clouds. Poetic and reduced to the radicalism of a few gestures, the figurative space disappears and become geometrical and monochromic. The transformation is in progress yet the game stands still.
