The Inventaire Déraisonné is a visual archive work. The images, here juxtaposed in a form of automatic writing, come exclusively from found books and then cut out, the artist thus creates 420 pages made up of 2427 images. Anatomical details, ancient sculptures, industrial architectures…These shots come mostly from encyclopedias, dictionaries, as many books that have become obsolete at a time when knowledge seems accessible from any screen. These images constitute a hinterland, a cartography of representations archived by the mind.

If you think you have understood the wars in Lebanon, you can certainly say that you have not understood anything. Recalling that the territory is smaller than the Ile-de-France will give a framework, a space wedged between Israel and Syria. Abandoned by the French to the Christians with the injunction to tolerate the Muslim communities, in exchange for which the country will experience an economic golden age. Then comes the geopolitical stratum, the Palestinian camps in Jordan, a real state within a state, which after Black September will cause an influx of 400 000 refugees on Lebanese soil. The support for the cause of the fedayeen by communist and socialist organisations, which saw a mixture of community, clan, religious and ideological conflicts. To this we must add the numerous foreign hands, even countless, the Cold War and decolonization, more than elsewhere the interests are complex. Then, above all, there are the people and the worst kind of war, the fraternal one, which knows no limits, the civil war. Revenge becomes the systematic operating mode, one-upmanship the rule, pride and dignity the basis of a moral code. Whoever claims to be strong enough to propose peace is murdered. By whom? For what? Everything becomes blurred. Everything is subdivided. The factional war. The Lebanon wars.Order here
