On the blinds of a used rolling shutter, the word “HOME” is reduced and deconstructed as many times as the artist speaks languages on a daily basis (five). These blinds, destined to be replaced by new ones, become a surface of experimentation for a new language. It questions the idea of a place of living, the idea of a nation, cosmopolitanism and the loss of stable reference points when a person is forced to move and constantly mix several languages and cultures. A creolisation of the language then appears essential and necessary for the reconstruction process of a new uncertain identity.
