UN COURANT DONT JE NE CONNAIS PAS LA SOURCE
(A CURRENT WHOSE SOURCE I DO NOT KNOW) 2017
UN COURANT DONT JE NE CONNAIS PAS LA SOURCE (a current whose source I do not know) takes place in the wash house of the rural town of Calvignac, France. Marie-Luce Nadal dips two aluminum panels into the water, in which she numerically cuts out a text about the origins of the clouds, their presence in idiomatic expressions and the way these influence our way of perceiving them.
Curtains separate the spaces and panels. If you look quickly, they have holes in them. But if you look closely, you can see that these holes are painted by the artist using embers that escape from the grid of a sieve.
