25 SUR 1500 DES MIGRANTS DANS LE MONDE SONT DES MAROCAINS
The “Threads” are like aba- cuses whose balls have been replaced by small sculptures representing characters.

Here, 25 figurines painted with minute detail (The Moroccans) are lost among 1475 others, each one painted a bright color.

I created this sculpture in Mo- rocco, traditionally a country of emigration, but which is in- creasingly becoming a country of immigration.

A multitude of colors that evoke a great variety of cul- tures of course, but also the traveling painters that color- ed Western art through their extensive voyages (Delacroix, Gauguin, Klee…).

A statistic taken from the press is thus visualized, sculpted.

The great length of the thread enables the vertigo that char- acterizes our world, constantly inventoried and yet elusive.
