Matthieu Delourme
Guéret : Market Square

Urban blocks - facades stolen from the nothingness reintroduced immediately. A break, an empty space which disconcerts, a city theatre under the sky without decoration. Masonry of Creuse in escape mode. The eternal return in 26 seconds on the stopwatch. Stabilization of clouds.

(Translated from french)
