conversation with angels


La cambre/2003

> Texts from the Old Testament (Jacob’s dream), theKoran (Mohamed’s journey) and Michel Serres (La légende des anges)
(published in English as Angels: A Modern Myth)
> The installation consists of suspended fabric that evokes the lightness of desert tents in the wind. The viewer walks “inside” a text.

> It was not done by imprinting but rather by removing material: cotton fibres are eaten away by aluminium sulphate. The text appears where the fabric has been “devoured”. Thus the text is born of the light.
