"The song of the dunes is a long, deep, melodious and very powerful sound. Marco Polo and Charles Darwin already mentioned this mysterious music in their travel stories. A Chinese manuscript from the 8th century also mentions it. Some compare this sound to a rumble of thunder, others to the sound of an airplane, still others to the buzzing of a swarm of bees. Many hypotheses have been put forward to try to explain this phenomenon, from the most far-fetched (djinns running in the dunes, spirits banging on drums, rivers flowing under the sand...) to the most serious (individual vibration of the grains, resonance of the whole dune, intervention of the wind...). But, to tell the truth, this song had never really been studied until now because it occurs rarely, unpredictably and in very few places." - Florence DANIEL

This work is a scalpel cut out of thick card stock. Created in Berlin in February 2020.

Florent's work is focused on an awareness of the natural elements that surround us, the human condition, its relationship with time and space, meditation, introspection, and the unseen depth we have as humans. These imperceptible subtleties of living beings are an inexhaustible and vast source of inspiration and questioning. What challenges him in his approach and role as an artist today is the search for a visual form in the mind or in abstract notions of time and space. 

To counterbalance these very vague notions, science takes an important part in the artist's work as he attempts to rationalize the abstract or find a visual form in the rationale of science. His focus words are patience, concentration, and rigor. He tries, however, to stay as spontaneous as possible, to repeat simple gestures, and take credit for natural human mistakes. 

Today, as an artist, one must face the reality of a time when the world around us is moving at an extremely fast pace while the world within us does not. He does not want to dwell on external things, events or news. These notions are the opposite of what drives him. He is attracted to what exists "between the lines", the ellipses, the moments when our eyes are closed, the internal vision of a blind man, dreams and all that that is imperceptible. 

Through his works, he offers the opportunity to pause and listen to our feelings, to try to visualise them and to feel them, to interact with a moment stopped in time. The discipline of practices such as drawing, painting or sculpture enables the artist to work on himself through art. The focus is not on the result, but on the mental reflection and the physical state of the creation process. Every gesture is important because it influences the next. Every thought is important because it influences the gesture. Ceramics highlight this notion much more than drawing or painting because the clay has a much more present memory of each movement that is inflicted on it. 

Florent's process is comparable to a machine capable of transcribing graphically or in volume, the expression of the impalpable, invisible and indescribable in us and around us...A perfect balance between art and science.
