Même jeu, 2021

Pauline Cordier writes space. Her stories take us back to the time when we were wanderers. The time when humans inhabited the world through walking, building menhirs as architectures of emptiness, like memorial stones.

Her megaliths act as a bridge to the outside world, between art and life, between different temporalities. Cordier creates a "hearth-work" that connects with the millennia-old territories we all inhabit. Through our sensory memory, she tethers us to life, forcefully or gently distilling subtle messages. Pauline Cordier invites us to penetrate and roam territories, to sit around the fire and listen to the silence.
