Fair Semblant


Faire Semblant from the French “to simulate” indicates the act of “pretending to be someone or something”.

The snow gives the possibility to perceive the lived space in a different way than usual. Looking out from the balcony of my house and noticing the similarity between the shapes of the bare trees and the marks left by the tires of the cars, triggered in me a perceptive short-circuiting of space, transforming the usual parking lot, a place without urban greenery, into a potential extension of the adjacent park. The signs of the cars above become a simulation of an artificial nature and at the same time encompass the passage of daily life, a passage recorded and imprinted on the snow, until its change of state.
