Forms are presented as consumer products. Abstract surfaces, silhouettes of everyday objects, packagings are put on the same level, that of the wall. These suspended and isolated shadows oscillate between potential functionality and free gesture. An oversized carved cardboard evokes a totem surrounded by talismans dedicated to the rituals of the market. This set of hybrid elements undermines the boundary between merchandise and representation.
