Program notes
“Auprès, au loin” (Near, far) is a journey through the process of creation, that in one hand derives strength from introspective experience, on the other hand describes process of creation as a challenge to handle strong interruptions from outside that change and shape the inner sphere.
This is continuous cycle of reappearances, in what forces come across each other and create new antithesis, even out or transmute and change the disposition of material.
