ABOUT HIS COLLECTION FOR ARTJAWS: “HEMISPHERES” 

“Hemispheres” evokes as much the idea of metaphysical spaces where we can exist and dream as geographic and biological territories. North/south, left/right, emotional/rational, real/virtual — the notion of hemisphere calls to mind duality, binarity, conflict but also transition. It is this shifting between two realms that frames this selection of works, observing what is at stake from the point of view of perception and the senses, questioning landscapes and nature in the age of technologies and even shaping the contours of a new poetic imagination through scientific knowledge.
