Illustrations & Cie

"Chance brought me face to face with it, a forgotten statue in the Place Saint-Jean.Like a vanishing ghost, it compelled me to rewrite its history.I examined locations...people, books."
As I turned the corner of a Brussels square, a statue caught my attention and my curiosity. Who was it ?As my research progressed, I discovered the story of Gabrielle Petit, heroine of the Great War. Her glorified destiny and her personal story led me to understand how a myth is created. The work of cross-checking information and investigations at the scenes of her life have made this project a reading in layers. The technique of overlaying drawings on tracing paper corresponds to this reflection.

An animation was realized from this comic strip :

A tactile book produced with the assistance of ONA (National Charity for the Blind).
Embossments, stencils, sheets of tracing paper, on the subject of the herbarium.
"The garden gate was open...
Would you like one of my fruits?, the fig tree asks me.
It's just that the path in the garden is long, you'll need it."
