This serie of images representing the hidden side of the moon (originally taken by a satellite of the NASA in 2011) plays with the idea of erasure through an inappropriate use of the silkscreen medium. 

By leaving the screen gradually clog by the ink drying in the mesh of the fabric (which must then normally be cleaned regularly), it becomes increasingly difficult to print and thus to collect trace of the pattern, resulting finally that the moon merges completely with the background. 

Temporality of the printing process and the lunar cycle then follow a parallel path, which ends when the moon completely disappeared from the surface of the paper.


4 serie of 8 images + A.E., silk-screened 2 colours each, 42 x 59 cm, 2011.
