A washbasin is a form of the everyday life that lives in a private space without really belonging to the person occupying the premises. In an apartment, it is an element of property “by destination” which is often present before its owner who uses it without having chosen it. Located in the bathroom – the space of the intimate – it is subject to time and human actions.
I wanted to explore its form by moulding it, creating a new object made soft by its new material. The latex gives to the object another attitude; it sags and deforms itself. Becoming something else, the washbasin loses its function and becomes the image, the skin of the real object. It moves towards another temporal and spatial adventure. It takes on a sculptural and silent attitude.
