“opus incertum—a term borrowed from Roman masonry, which involves building walls from small blocks, broken tiles and various bricks—the artist questions the memory of time and place, and the social and functional transformations that the Chapelle de la Charité, the religious building and place of worship in which he exhibits, has undergone. His aim is to reveal the layers that have been superimposed, and to reconnect the site with the contemporary world.
opus incertum tells the story of a new reality, documenting episodes of urban construction, uncovering what is hidden by the ostentatious, revealing what is no longer seen. opus incertum is also a tribute to the collective work and commitment of those who make up society during the construction process, who ensure the transmission of methods and culture, and who practice oral exchange in exemplary solidarity, while remaining invisible. The photographic installation emphasizes functional and pragmatic aesthetics. With an undeniable sense of humor, the artist invites visitors to move the new icons, installed on handling carts, and to take part in the work. He succeeds in creating a sublimation, a sublimation of the useful.”
