In between the gesture of making and the gesture of use, the artist proposes a system of narrative production.

The déshabillé proposal is articulated with a book, an audio interaction and the work of the artist and the curator as caretakers of the interior of a light industry passementerie in action.

They impose this restrictive condition upon themselves in order to serve as a tool in comprehension practice as well as to facilitate the immersion of the viewer to the accumulated layers of passementerie production during the one hundred and forty-four years operation of the Mentis light industry.

The book takes the form of a cahier français, a liabilities registration record of a daily routine in contention. A personal alphabet, an alternative abécédaire, like the ones stacked in the space.

In choreography to the sound of the manufacturing machinery, the fabric strip, a new creation of the same technique, refers to a wired antenna that connects us to familiar sounds and to the sound of the other.
