Body's memory : reminiscence of

a distant past still alive. 

What is in our underground conscience? This project guided my research when I was student in DSAA, writing my master's thesis. The main issue was to highlight a universal collective unconscious taking shape in Nature. Memory has long been a source of questions. It can simply be defined as the consciousness of the past. Whether it is individual memory or collective memory, it seems to play a major role in the individual’s identity, whether that identity is personal or shared. 

 

As this project progressed, the notions of connexion and sociability emerged. Group's belonging has been, and is still, a key element on our self-construction. It is fundamentally committed to community. Between origins and instincts, I wanted to reveal this invisible link and this primitive spirituality through different materialities. 

This invitation to introspection, through the materiality of a stigma or the allegory of an echo,  must be connected to the Platonic theory of reminiscence. "Everyone has the knowledge itself, just remember them. Knowledge is inherent in man, not outside. Wisdom is learning to recollect."  Socrate, 5th century BC.
