Please is always beautiful

350 × 500 mm

From my plastic researches on Frans Masereel’s way of engraving the effects of drapés, I have selected a pattern, which becomes a white flag – universal symbol of peace. As a standard of Frans Masereel's art and values, the flag takes a 3D animation shape and is broadcasted on a digital media, the nowadays most accessible mean of distribution. Peace is always beautiful is an excerpt of the pœm The Sleepers, written by Walt Whitman who shares Frans Masereel’s convictions.

"In this land where we live, everything is in a hurry to disappear. That's the rule. No one can do anything about it. Time goes, years go, life goes, and we go. Nothing lasts. Everything passes. Without exception."

In 1969 Jean Widmer won the competition for the creation of the Centre Pomidou's communication graphic charter. In his proposal, he did not mention a logo. Indeed, Jean Widmer believes that the use of a logo is incompatible with the idea of a cultural centre. Except a few weeks before the inauguration, at the end of a meeting Claude Mollard, the General Secretary, apostrophe Jean Widmer: "Widmer! We need a logo! If you don't have one, we'll ask someone else! "he threatens. In response, Jean Widmer, teasingly, sketched some sketches on the paper tablecloth of a café opposite the centre and drew the facade opposite him . "I'll do the facade for you". The logo of the Pompidou centre was born.

Installation of my works presented during my B.A in Fine Art at ENSA Nancy, in 2018. The installation provides an overview of my work and invites visitors to meander between projects. The use of insulating material resonates with the sensitivity and subjects evoked in my projects.
