We are not of the world
but from specific places
"Layette" is about the way we appear in the world. It reminds us that the body is our place in it. It is the basis of existence, it conditions us, but it also allows us to taste life. Immersed in digital media on a daily basis and seduced by futuristic promises of order based on technology, we forget that we are, above all, natural.
The elements of the baby layette included in the installation speak of the body by their functions (changing table, feeding pillow), but also by recognizable shapes and traces of the body, such as secretions related to childbirth and infancy (milk poop, spilled milk, blood). Being in harmony with nature, the work was created entirely from materials found or stored in the family collections, natural dyes from food leftovers were used for dyeing.
