X-ist (2008)

The work is a video projected in landscape format. The image is wide but not tall. it evokes the idea of a label, an identity badge. It is projected low on a wall in an appropriate position that calls for any viewer to walk between the projector and the image, at which moment the image is directly placed on the viewer.The viewer is the subject of the act of marking, and is visible as an inscribed body at this moment.

The projection echoes the surgeon who here metaphorically carries the historic, cultural and social weight of inscription so important to Foucault. The piece contain's Foucault's view, where the tools of society, inscribe the body.
