Series of hand made maps (ink on paper) representing countries of Africa. The maps are disturbed in their visibility and codification the geopolitic information is unreadable, and the codes of the nation (names, borders, scale…) disappear. This is like a « copyist » work, using photocopies of national map (north Africa, south Africa and Angola ) as sources. There is no personal intervention, no subjectivity in this copying approach ; neutrality and methodical process are the purpose of this work which only concerns the repetition and mecanical gesture of the painter. These inks reflect a national crisis fact, the nation-state being diluted in a world-wide magma which weave a meta-national web.
