Blackboard entry by Pauline Tonglet

A Creative Pool project by Pauline Tonglet (Belgium)

Using old documents collected in the course of chance encounters, old letters vibrant with vanished messages, sewing patterns with their delightful tissue paper and delicate dotted lines, old maps with obsolete borders, and pages from magazines that go so quickly out of fashion but are so telling about our volatile minds, the artist cuts, arranges, organises by theme and by genre, and intuitively creates a new world with ingredients that can still speak individually but also express an unprecedented reality.  Their proximity and new neighborhoods generate a different message, another truth.
