From the Morceaux urbains series, this project presents numerous images of drain inlets and road network elements. The accumulation insists on their unremarkable everyday visual presence while relaying their urban reference to simple graphic signs. These urban details normally lie under our feet, at the surface of the city. By entering the underground space, we physically cross the earth line, where there are entanglements of city road network ducts. Coming from above, we travel below the ground sol, leaving a complex organisation for another, parallel, reversed one. Multiples layers of space are simultaneously activated.
