The Soul's Seashore, from 1997 to 2006
When the complexity of daily life focuses on the sole activity of listening to the rumbling of the sea, and its slow seducing movement, the essence of life itself, simply consists of becoming one more element in the landscape.
The seashore, this peculiar space where we plunge into a pleasant state of relaxation, creates the illusion of making us believe, that we are essentially a part of it. At the seashore, life is represented in a simple way, objects, animals and people, appear and disappear. These elements alternate, randomly or carefully arranged by chance and natural cycles.
The seashore changes at the rhythm of the tides. There is hardly a second to contemplate the same landscape. Any figure or reference seems to be swallowed by time and space, and taking its photograph is a utopia, a desire to inhabit a space where life is projected. Therefore, this work is a very symbolic approach to the concept of a beach.
