Chosen exiles
Jean-Michel Botquin

From New York, the artist brings small daily notebooks, they are both memory and the origin of the work. A perception of the people she meets in the neighbourhoods where she wanders. Ecoline, acrylic, works on paper sketch as many silent encounters, as many viewpoints, as many observations, of emphasized looks. Two drawings record the walking time between the house and the studio. One can think here of the conceptual standardization of Stanley Brouwn’s movements, the act of walking as banal as it is, therefore more likely to bear the spatial dimension of the work. But here, the archive would be much more elusive, delicate, the step is light as the dotted drawings of another series, drawn point by point. The city here is a maze of infinite steps, in search for others, in quest of oneself.
