We are made of more Water than Blood

We are made of more Water than Blood

'in situ' installation around light, reflection and colour

Over 220 blown glass pebbles, some 1100 glass beads all made one by one.

My first installation, made specifically for the museum of light and landscape in Roeselare, Belgium

16 September to 2 December 2018.


Oost 3°7’45” / Noord 50°55’12” / Bergstraat 23 / 8800 Roeselare

outdoor site and architecture every day between 11am and 5pm



'In water, I find peace, inner silence and comfort ...'

The title of the installation mirrors my personal journey on a quest for change and transformation. Through this work I discovered again the inherent resilience that water is able to transmit.

The choice of the color blue to symbolize water also reflects my need at that time to walk away from the color red which I use a lot in my work.

The installation is built around light, reflection and color it transmits through glass. It is also directly inpired by my first visit to Muze’umL in February 2017. I was attracted by the museum's concept around light and time and the connections the museum aims to establish along the light meridian in other parts of the world. Specifically the one with Africa as I grew up in Ivory Coast and I feel deeply rooted both in Belgium and in the African continent.

Therefore I hope this installation will be able to travel and evolve ...

Specifically for the museum, a meridian of glass pebbles with white Seeds beads because:

the light meridian links mountains on white, silver and grey// the light meridian enters europe in ‘blanken’berge' E 3°7’45” / N 51°19’00”

Alongside the installation, I will present a selection of the photographs I take of the reflections of my pieces. The light, the shadows and colors my pieces project have slowly taken as much value as the pieces themselves and are becoming a major component and companion of my work.
