• Pourquoi s'engueuler avec des mots quand on peut s'entendre avec des symboles ? 2003
This photographic series, based on a text by Michel Lefebvre, and created in the city of Poznan, Poland for the interdisciplinary festival Inner Spaces 2003, stands on this langage and communication problem exarcerbated in a foreign city. When words no longer mean, symbols take a munch more important signification. With humor, the photographic constructions look upon the universal codes of the road signs by diverting them from their original context and misrepresenting the words associated with them. The city becomes a fictional construction, an ideal space to communicate through the imaginary another social perspective.

The images have been published on the no. 53 of the magazine esse, «Utopie et dystopie», Montréal, winter 2005
