The Bad Mood Boards…N°2

Here is the second Bad Mood Board I made.

This time I used the photographs of graffiti that I take in Berlin and which are the basis for the embroidered collages.

In bulk we also find my favorite themes:

A photograph of “levitation”, or lethargy , a muscular hyperexcitability caused by the method of hypnosis of Pr. Charcot. Photograph taken between 1876 and 1878, from the Iconography of the Salpêtrière.

Butterflies, death masks (here the death mask of Napoleon Bonaparte)

Notes & Sketches for The D-Ring Project, Muses in the City

Tears in the City: Rebuilding, Repetition, Introspection.

The stich, the stich, the stich. Extended time.

I filmed at the embroidery’s backside when I was embroidering my collage with the Lunéville ‘s hook. The invisible hook in a perpetual motion, perforating the paper. The hook and this repetitive sound of the stich.
