to the world Petite encyclopedie
vers le monde
4.5cm x 5cm, 2004
This work is to make small books, small catalogs, to present
my viewpoints for the ordinary materials in my daily life.
I start from the intimacy (my collections, my belongings,
my interests) hoping that thins work will go much further
until it can show an integral whole.
In addition, I love collecting. I see better the world
and also build a personal world through bringing these objects
together. The fact of collecting is related to the construction
of identity. Besides, it is a way to intercene in the passage
of time. I also think that "collecting" is to
appropriate things, more exactely, to appropriate what they
represent, what they mean to us. People can therefore read
their own stories from my small books.
