“Paper also as a material : activated, used, rubbed, glued, ripped, cut, turned, erased, folded, archived. Those papers, as a basic documentation, sometime seem to return to their administrative form looking at their arrangement, laid, stacked, filed, stapled papers. Retrieve, find, sort, file, put into order, clean, order, file, is part of the drawing process. Drawing is done through a series of gestures. Found, given papers are sometimes prefered to papers that have been purchased.”
