In the artist’s words: “Before our time, when everything needs to be controlled and precise, and constellations are identified by lines and points, there was pure dream, fantasy. Among the many representations of constellations, I chose three iconographies: those designed by Persian astronomer Al-Sufi (903-986); those illustrated by Polish astronomer J. Hevelius (1611-1687) and German astronomer J. Bayer (1572-1625); and those from our modern/contemporary era, represented this way since 1800. These illustrations are artworks in their own right. Re-drawing them implies a process of appropriation, in order to slowly connect myself to a past time.”
