1980: My Journey in China

I made a journey in China in 1980. During this journey, I visited many places because I wanted to know the monuments, the towns, the rural areas, the life of the people who lived in the towns and the life of the people who lived in the rural areas. That trip was important for me because in the 70s China represented a myth for my generation and we had idealized the personalities and the political ideals of that country.
During my trip, I bought some very chip objects that, for me, represented this country. Now I have photographed these objects to make my work “1980: My Journey in China”.
The photos of the objects and some writings, that reminds me of my trip, have become the decoration items of a series of little open boxes. These boxes are like the containers of my memories.
I used a mix of porcelain and paper (paper-clay) to do my boxes. I even used a lot of blue colour because this colour and porcelain are the elements that characterize the Chinese ceramics.
