One of my works "In Time III", gathers all the techniques that I have developed since 2018 namely collage, sewing and mesh.It was inspired by the Sankofa bird which is a mythical bird that moves forward with its head turned backwards, which expresses in fact this return to the sources to better apprehend the future. Here, I did not use the bird but rather my emblematic character with a sheep's head.
In this work, we find this sheep with its head tilted backwards. On the one hand, there is the writing, the ancient Phoenician alphabet which represents the past; on the other hand, there are the binary codes which represent the future.
