Suimyaku

Suimyaku is a series of walks along several rivers, from their source to the sea. As Komo no Chômei writes it in Notes de ma cabine de Moine (Notes from my Monk cabin): 3Water endlessly flows, but it never is the dame water. Here and there, on the quiet surfaces, some foam spots appear, disappear, without lingering for long. The same goes for men here below and for their dwellings.” The memory of these walks has led to a series of drawings which comes in two sets. In the first one, the gleaned objects (branches, stones, leaves) are used as drawing tools. In the second one, an unbroken line flies and doubles, from one side to the other side of the support, without being quite the same line.
