— Marguerite Yourcenar said of Zeno, the character in “L’Œuvre au Noir”: “He is in the process of living the Œuvre au noir, that is to say, the period of dissolution and calcination of all the concepts, all the prejudices, all the notions on which we are accustomed to living. Thus, the artist who approaches the black can, in the path of Pierre Soulages, turn light into matter and reverse the rules of perception. But he can also, in a radical gesture, give a pause to signs, thwart meaning, experiment with eyesight, burn images, fry matter. He can, on the threshold of silence, of disappearance, undo his own practice or seek in the night to appropriate all its data. He can ink, ink more and more, make baths of black ink absorbed by fabrics and threads which, once dry, will gain an unprecedented hold. He can hallucinate, see nature, which we know is threatened, lose its chlorophyll; he can seek blindness and take up the question posed by Marielle Degioanni in the face of darkness: Do you Glow?
