L'homme dans les draps
Fleeting shadow-sculptures emerge from white bed sheets. Men’s profiles form and de-form, as if by their own bidding. These transient silhouettes conjure past lives and question the memory that physical objects might hold, offering a visual conversation between what is permanent and what is temporary.
