Lot 1 - Cécile Davidovici - Reminiscence
Cotton Threads and Print on Paper
Signed on Verso
Curated by Bakul Patki
After completing drama and theater studies, french artist, Cécile Davidovici (b.1987) decided to study ﬁlmmaking in New York City as her next step. Whilst in NYC, the movies that she wrote and directed have been displayed at festivals throughout the world, some receiving multiple awards. Following her mother's death, Davidovici felt a need to replace images and sound with physical, tactile materials. From these intensions and successful discoveries, Davidovici has been able to adapt this new medium to allow herself to anchor her art in the moment. Making the medium of textiles her own, playing with threads in the manner a painter would with paint, she is carving out her very own niche within the complex world of contemporary Art.

‘Reminiscence’ is made from fragments of an antique Roman fresco displayed on a see through paper. On top of it is embroidered, the face of a person, peacefully leaning on another version of themself. A gentle and nostalgic version.
This piece wonders about how individuality is shaped by the successive layers of time which become constitutive of the present.
