Back To Childhood
- 2012 -



A few months ago, I was hanging around in my grandparent's attic. What I found among other things was a box full of toys I used to play with as a child. Each of them reminded me of a particular moment of my childhood and I felt emotionally connected to them. Instead of storing them back into their box, I tried to imagine what they could look like in our adult world. Going further than their power to generate nostalgia, toys offer those who animate them a marvelous power to reinvent the world.

Back To Childhood est un portail nostalgique faisant ressurgir avec humour dans le présent des vestiges de notre passé. Des jouets plastifiées, estampillés Fisher-Price ou Playskool, succès commerciaux écoulés à des milliers d'exemplaires et symboles du formatage de notre enfance occidentale. Mis en scène dans des situations grotesques qui rapellent l'insouciance et la distraction, ce projet est un dernier hommage rendu aux jouets de ma jeunesse. Avant de les renvoyer dans le grenier d'où ils ont été exhumés par hasard quelques mois plus tôt..
