Arché

Conical form in plaster, piece mould, Marseille 2014-15

Etymological travel in the words and in the form.
Every piece is engraved of an etymology, Greek, Latin, Sanskrit or indo-Germanic. The pieces in plaster keep the etymology in negative of the piece on which they lean. All the parts are bound by meaning and etymology; from the presence to the absence via the decomposition. Arché is the origin, the principle of "to dig", by making up and by decomposing forms and words.
