MOUCHOIRS DE DESIRS BRODES
Aerial and poetic, deliberately refined, black on white, in square formats
these handkerchiefs, each corresponding to an extract of dreams,
can be read as a set of desires,
taking viewers into a narrative that is both personal and universal. Hand-embroidered,
Lysiane Bourdon kept the different threads on the back,
as a witness to gesture and labor.
These threads also represent the disjointed and escaping aspect of dreams, visible in transparency.

Suspended in space, Dream Armor behaves like a protective armor that filters out external waves. Fashioned with fur and metal ornamental pieces, it evokes both combat armor, clothing, and jewelry mosaic. We also think of a contemporary Penelope who patiently sews her 374 small metal pieces, four times for each.
