Une Encyclopédie Imaginaire, by Laurent Millet.
If you take a walk through Millet’s work you will feel connected. Connected with nature, as human. With our own doubts and wonderings. Our own weight and our own lightness of being. Our paths and our own deviations. As human leaving invisible traces in visible forms of our sublime realms. Dancing still with our minds moving around. Like thrown stones without gravity. Timeless; without a sense of space. Challenging science. Challenging oneself.
Because stones can fly in Millet’s world. As they can dance.
“The series “Mon histoire avec les Pierres” (“My story with the Stones”) was one of my attempts to make small sceneries and performances in which I was adapting some old scientific engravings or representations in the landscape. I used found materials to built most of it, hanging the objects and the writings to big frames most of the time not visible in the picture. I wanted to make this ideal world of scientific representation concrete. For example the astronomical representations were transformed into a sculpture made with barrel parts, stones, wire writings, pieces of rope and string. The landscape is the background as well as the page on which one can look at these installations. Photography is there to prove that this meeting between me, the landscape and these strange objects once happened, very much inspired in abstracts ideas.”
