... J'oeuvre en humanité.

During the pandemic in 2020, if I had the pleasure of seeing a little girl extend our lineage, all the measures in place which reduced our freedoms to move spoke to me very strongly. Coming from a family plagued by the tragedy of immigration since the beginning of the 20th century, I can only note its dispersion to the four corners of the earth. I wondered about the family legacy for my ancestors, what remains of our family culture when each of us adheres to the culture that welcomed us.

I therefore chose to build a family tree on my mother's side - the one where I know the impact of immigration - which I want visual and textual. For each member I write an echo-praise - a self-praise that resonates with this person - whose inspiration will be the trigger for an echo-portrait, a portrait that echoes my feelings - in my abstract expressionist style.

It is this family tree, my family legend, to which I bear witness. Each member of my family will thus be presented with a sentence that proved to be the most evocative to me. French, and English will be displayed to which the original languages will be added in homage to our origins.
