The repetition of a pattern, one of the specifications of
AWS, corresponds to a certain decorative tradition. However
the repetition of an identical face that I propose, constitutes
a reflection on identity and on the formatting of the mind.
Disc Dur is composed of a black drawing on a white background
representing a standardised human body seen from above, rather
like a logotype. The drawing is situated in the centre of
a metal coloured disc, on one hand allowing a rotation and
on the other creating a mobile hermetic balloon.
Rotation (to turn around oneself), the body as an instrument
of standardisation and identity, constitute a few of my artistic
preoccupations to be seen regularly in my work, (Identité,
1993 Identity ; 300 exemplaires 1998,
300 duplicates ; Lautre, 1998
The Other ; Music Box 2000 ; Les
Vitrines, Dortmund 2000 The windows), etc.
