“For me, the city is not just a space that we travel through to get from one point to another: it is a magnificent and inexhaustible playground. For example, I like to wander around it at random, based on the roll of a dice or a dart thrown at a map. The subject of my Palm Club project was the huge amount of illegal dumping in my neighbourhood, but it was really about the possibility of recognising one’s agency in constructing the kind of public space that we would like. This new series features four symbolic locations in the capital. Some of the images were made in collaboration with (the singer-composer) Renato Baccarat.”
