Shape of the Mountain is a project which was initiated in Nepal, throughout a trek around the Annapurna of the second massif of Himalaya.
An ink-jet from a cliff on a canvas downwards.
The ink fall and the appearance of the ground shape the sacred stamp of this vertical earth that captures the vertigo,the fall, the geological time and the limitless space of the mountain.
The fertile mountain gives rise to the substrate which is deposited on the canvas: In this way, the wood which grows on it becomes ink.
The sublime vision of Kant exceeds the capacity of the human mind to think about it and represent it.
Thus, the artist’s gesture disappears to let the formal peculiarities of this perception express itself.
In a Zen meditative momentum, it recalls the approach of the Chinese calligraphers who seek in their gesture the feeling of vacuity.
