"L'impulsion vive" is a series of five drawings of busts of women sometimes placed on the ground, sometimes buried or submerged ... They are inspired by everyday life, archetypal and ancestral cultural transmissions, life lessons that cross and jostle us.
"Rooted in the stars" testifies to the reconnection to our ancestors, to those who once nourished our hearts. The wax pattern (African fabric) in the background is adorned with "cowries" (small shells originally used as currency or to practice the art of divination).
