My head in your hair I can still smell it
Exhibition held at ESF, Espace Saint-François, Lausanne, Switzerland
My head in your hair I can still smell it echoes some burned out wood fires that one might come across at the edge of a forest or on the side of a countryside road. Those ephemeral architectures presuppose and suggest a particular moment, solitary or collective, a summer camp, a meeting between friends, a spiritual gathering or even the cooking of a sausage. At the same time, the completion of a wood fire resonates and links an individual with a millenary activity and history that can be glimpsed at through those reiterated gestures.
My head in your hair I can still smell it is made of ceramic logs and wood branches imitating as closely as possible the appearance of charred wood. This displacement and re-building of a pseudo-wood fire in an exhibition space refers to certain natural history museums in which environments and events are entirely recreated and re-staged outside of their initial contexts. Holding a blurred identity, My head in your hair I can still smell it oscillates between being a replica of a future event or an invention of a forgotten past.
