utopia means no place

ou ‘not’ + topos ‘place’

Utopias: Alone Together (2018)

“Being is always an instance of Being-with. Whatever exists co-exists”1

Solitude is defined in relation to communion that is absent. There is no one without the other.

Anne O'Byrne, Natality and Finitude, p123.

Utopias: New Work (2018)

When figures are caricatured into crude drawn lines or smudged painted shapes, they are displaced into fictional no-where places. A decontextualized image becomes more shareable, relatable and generates a larger plurality of associations and meanings for the viewer.

Utopias: Islands (2019)

updates soon

Es-tu ici?


Ou là.


Il peut exister un groupe d’îles.


Mais chaque île demeure seule.


La séparation porte-t-elle la mémoire d’un ensemble?


Ou l’oubli est-il plus important?


La forme de la mer.


Le rivage.

Are you here?

 

Or there.

 

There can exist a group of islands.

 

But each island is still its own.

 

Does separation remember wholeness?

 

Or is forgetting more important?

 

The shape of the sea.

 

The shore.
