When one leaves home to live abroad, as many people are forced to do so on our planet, acculturation, feelings of non-belonging, precariousness or isolation, a wide range of insecure sensations can occur.

Cotton mul-mul, sheer « woven wind » is used in India to envelop new born babies.

Multimedia installation, nineteen paintings on cotton, fans, sound of rain.

At the end of the dry season, the peacock, national Indian bird, flies towards human homes to announce the rain.

Ultramarine, pure Emerald, Turquoise, blue lines made with natural elements trace live shapes, expressing the precise instant of their making, as in Chinese calligraphy.
