Mouchoirs de Désirs

Aériens et poétiques, volontairement épurés, noir sur blanc et de formats presque carrés, ces mouchoirs, correspondant chacun à un extrait des rêves de Lysiane, peuvent se lire comme un ensemble de désirs, emmenant les spectateurs dans une narration à la fois personnelle et universelle. Brodés à la main, elle en a gardé les différents fils au verso, comme témoin du geste et du labeur. Ces fils représentent également l'aspect décousu et échappatoire des rêves, visibles en transparence.

It is within the framework of a more conceptual ensemble that I propose a dreamlike installation made of "Handkerchiefs of Desires"
Aerial and poetic, deliberately purified, black on white and almost square formats,
These handkerchiefs, each corresponding to an extract of  her  dreams, can be read as a set of desires, taking the viewers in a narrative that is both personal and universal.
Embroidered by hand, she has kept the different threads on the back as a witness to gesture and toil. These threads also represent the disjointed and escaping aspect of dreams, visible in transparency.
