On s'en Lasse
Encre de chine on paper
100 cm x 183 cm
In French, “on s’enlasse” roughly means “we’re hugging’’, while “on s’en lasse” roughly means “we’re disinterested’’. The word play hints at these two actions happening at the same time, the former being the positive space, the latter being the negative one. The piece juxtaposes a past where the two beings shared one another to a present where this connection is vanishing and will soon have completely dissapeared.
