These cyanotypes explore the notion of time, its need to live with space and its representation in an hourglass. 


“A Space is necessary for Time to pass. Otherwise it means nothing. And do nothing. By drawing a circle, I delimit a space, in which each of the times can come to punctuate life. The past is known, I hope it will be benevolent, rich in knowledge to be valued. In the hourglass, it forms a pyramid. The present, the most indomitable temporality, this moment which, when it is there, has already passed. It is this fine line that we are on. It is this line that the hourglass creates. And the future, unknown to all, is open to opportunity. It has a funnel shape, open to the sky. Superimposed, these forms create an almost perfect symmetry. They speak of the system of time, of its balance. If the past is reversed to image the container that receives it, a completely different representation emerges: a mysterious and sensory valley landscape where so many stories can be imagined. An experiment. The one who can live thanks to time. Finally, the association of space and time. Time is represented here in all its brilliance, by the line of the present where life is and the link between future and past. Time is golden, like the millions of grains of sand flowing through the ring of the hourglass. Time is golden for all its knowledge, its indomitable infinity and its opportunities. » Chloe Marichez
