– Photographic print and billboard commission –

“Recently, I was thinking of the notions of “rave” (-party), “rêve” (dream) and “révolution” (revolution) and how they could cross etymologically and socio-politically. Immediately, among the few common denominators that emerged, I could quote: "transgression", "optimism", "collective experience (and transformation)”. Here is a photo-montage composed of a self-portrait – me at high altitude (holding a handrail), with the presence of Europa, the scribbled moon orbiting Jupiter. The piece also features hand-drawn creatures that face existential, gravitational, and cosmic challenges. At the heart of this composition is a call to action and a tribute to activists, especially those who have had to fight white colonisers and supremacists.”
