Texture du temps – monolithes 

« Ce livret d’artiste révèle une oeuvre composée de monolithes en bois. Récupéré et sauvé in extremis de la destruction dans les anciens chais Monnet à Cognac en Charente, le bois de cèdre utilisé est un acteur à part entière de cette installation consacrée au temps. Robuste et noble, il ne consolide plus les bâtiments centenaires mais, tel un témoin silencieux, soutient l’édifice de la mémoire. Le lettrage présent sur les monolithes, préparé et créé à la main et gravé dans un atelier spécialisé, dévoile sur chacun d´entre eux un extrait de textes d’auteurs, tels Proust, Heidegger ou Goethe, qui ont consacré une partie de leur réflexion à la notion du temps. Chaque lettre gravée dans le monolithe compose un mot. Chaque mot compose à son tour une phrase qui égrène son sens philosophique lorsque le temps de l’exploration s’installe. À cet instant, le sens transcende la matérialité du monolithe et la beauté littéraire se dévoile. L’instant d’après, la prose fragile dissimulée dans le bois ancien se confond avec la surface du monolithe pour proposer une texture du temps.»

Texture of Time – Monoliths

“This artist’s booklet reveals a unique collection of wooden monoliths. Recovered and saved in extremis from destruction in the old Monnet cellars in Cognac in Charente, the cedar wood used is a full-fledged player in this installation dedicated to time. Robust and noble, it no longer consolidates century-old buildings but, like a silent witness, supports the construction of memory. The lettering on the monoliths, prepared and created by hand and engraved in a specialized workshop, unveiled on each of them an extract from texts by authors, such as Proust, Heidegger or Goethe, who devoted part of their thinking to the notion of time. Each letter engraved in the monolith composes a word. Each word in turn makes up a sentence that casts its philosophical meaning when the time for exploration takes hold. At this moment, the meaning transcends the materiality of the monolith and the literary beauty is revealed. The next moment, the fragile prose hidden in the secular wood merges with the surface of the monolith to offer a texture of time.”
