A particular art project realized during the lockdown in France last spring. The government guidelines imposed a very strict protocol of outings: one hour per day, within a radius of 1 km. In addition, a certificate had to be produced for any trip. These strong constraints were imposed from the outset as a protocol for the artistic project : going round in circles, every day, within my square kilometer. From a printed plan, I imagined the routes beforehand by setting myself objectives : to walk while drawing a flower, a snail, to make the largest possible circuit… From this constrained walk, from my observations of a very well known neighbourhood rediscovered under other aspects, I created sixty-four drawnings.
This daily walk was both a space of freedom (to finally leave one’s home) and a space of lockdown (not to exceed the authorized limits, to go out for only one hour).
From these walks I present an archive file composed of 64 drawings and two texts: one concerning these daily walks, the other which questions the city mutations. To this is added a series of engravings made from my observations during these walks.
