The artist, who lives and works in Geneva, interweaves an abundance of scientific and vernacular references to reconstruct narratives that appeal to viewers’ shared memories. Here, he composes a suspended image: discreetly audible “bodies” in motion (small-scale models of hot-air balloons) are superimposed over the environment to turn it into a film set. The plays of scale create optical illusions, and these somewhat awkward-looking, hard-to-control objects tend to form a burlesque scene. The action is dreamlike to the same extent that creates a comical situation.
