"GRAVIERS -Caroline Pouzolles
(Marble gravel - February 1995 - +/- 220 x 220 x 1,5 cm)
Stones are placed equidistant from one another, with their ridgelines carefully oriented.
Through touching the tiny stones, the forms became virtual sounds, sounds that rang in my ears more faithfully than my vision.
I worked in two / three hour sessions, which became, after half an hour, veritable symphonies.
I aligned the pebbles, concentrating intensely on the evolution of my desire and its consequences,
on the gradual change of societies, the multiplicity of artistic forms, the situation of the individual in the flux of metamorphosis.
Through a patience with no destination other than a state of being, an attention plunged deep into the infinitesimal variations of a micro-ensemble of elements belonging to a sub-category of objects, through my decision to be without intention, I attained a pleasant lightness; joy, perhaps. - Realised over 8 days."
