Here, my studies in archaeology had a great influence on my work. The idea of studying the place of a past action by dividing this space into regular squares seemed perfect to illustrate all facets of the idea of “site.” It includes the concrete, physical, and geographical parts and also an abstract side, the reconstruction of ideas, the trace of action (clue referring to a past action), and the notion of time all together. The work has been installed in a space that refers to an action (a living space) without representation. This brings the idea that actions may create a site but are not essential to it. This in situ installation reveals the hidden structure of the space by making the existing lines in the apartment emerge; this new object radically changes the original space. It was meant to enhance the tension between the static nature of the grid and the investigation of time.
