What’s this painting ? It’s not a painting, it is a map. And you will find your way inside. A memory palace takes place, and we often meet there. Among other things, we grow oblivion. This palace does not have any address, it is closer to campfire than pyramid. It can light up more or less everywhere. We made it a purée, a yoghurt-song, a fountain, a boogie, a false memory, a blackbird, a speaking map. You can touch the surface where our rides intertwine. In our hands, the matter is soft. On a terrain with hazily edges, we begin a trip without resolution.
