Pondre


Pondre, 2006
Text from the Ballard Fetherston Gallery (Seattle):
This video is the result of a process: The artist, after having created his own graphic alphabet, refiguring and drawing each letter and then installing it as his own font (“Textimage”) for the computer, offers here excerpts of his latest French essay “Pondre” (translated from French as “to lay” or “to produce”), on a screen with the Textimage font giving a graphic vision of his words.
Each letter overlaps one another; each word and sentence becomes a new drawing and gives the rhythm to the video: You are watching a video, a moving image, that is the drawing of a text…
