The Ikarus Girl

The Ikarus Girl, daughter of the Architect of the Labyrinth, flies with wings made of feathers and wax. Both wanting to escape imprisonnment on Crete, the Ikarus Girl ignores her father's warnings not to fly too close to the sun, or else the wings might melt and she might drown in the sea. The Ikarus Girl does just that.

The text is made up of multiple voices of this flight and fall of not only the Ikarus Girl.

The Black Square, most intimate and at the same time most iconographic painting of modernity is perhaps the only horizon left in the face of such hybris.

The texts are accompanied by aquarells, an hommage to Malevich's Black Square painted by Gabrielle von Bernstorff for the 100 anniversary of the Black Square in 2015.
