That was a movement of painting and shape continuing into severals walls and depicting the passage of an assertive silhouette. Part of my work was to integrate the perspective given by the exhibition rooms as we move. So, this silhouette in the background appears and disappears between the two distant walls. My starting point was a video of Erykah Badu walking proudly in New-York city, then I fragmented the movement in a succession of still images.
