la corne (2005)

“La Corne” began with four photographs that I had found at different times. One came from a garbage heap behind a medical clinic, one was on the street and I don’t remember how I acquired the other two. The images “seem” to be rather intimate but they were nevertheless discarded. I found them to be evocative of the things that I saw on the web at the time so I decided to make a web-painting that behaved like a game of hide and seek. It was important to me that it could be read on any browser so I introduced a background text that seemed relevant to me in an effort to entertain text-based viewers. I began the project in 2000 and it took forever to make because of all the films. Each .gif is simple but there are many of them. It is very similar to my paintings.

“La Corne” a commencé avec quatre photographies que j'ai trouvées ici et là. J'ai trouvé une d'un tas d'ordures derrière une clinique médicale, une autre se trouvait dans une ruelle et je ne me rappelle plus comment j'ai acquis les deux autres. Les images "semblent" être plutôt intimes mais elles ont été néanmoins jetées. Elles m'ont évoqué des choses que j'ai vues sur l'internet alors j'ai décidé de faire un "tableau-toile" qui ressemblait à un jeu de cache-cache. Il était important pour moi que l'oeuvre soit lue sur n'importe quel fureteur donc j'ai préparé un texte de fond afin d'amuser le monde sans image. J'ai commencé le projet en 2000 et cela a m'a pris beaucoup de temps en raison de tous les petits films. Chaque .gif est simple mais il y en a beaucoup. Cette oeuvre ressemble à mes tableaux peints.
