Conditionnel présent, process, photographic documentation, 2019

Conditionnel present is a physical intervention made directly on the hand on a volunteer : the extension of his lifeline with a clean incision cut. Even if ambiguous this gesture of scarification could, maybe, be the sign of an extented life.

A documentation of the hand, just after the cut and before the wounds heals to transorm into a permanent scare, is printed in large size and presented in the exhibition space.

Mixing esoteric believes of palm-reading and hyper-rationalised thoughts of the post-humanism movement praising human intervention on every part of nature, this act create a direct confrontation between two very differetion visions of life and of reality.
