Elvire Bonduelle - Manifeste - 2004

I create things inspired by my quest for happiness. Most of the time it happens to be pieces of furniture or objects that can be useful because I want them to be present and influential in our everyday life. Their function is not essential -it is not often very functional anyway- but it tells stories : with the obstacles we loosen up, with the gradations we calm down, with the wedges we adapt ourselves, and so on. Sometimes I make videos, slideshows, songs or even books to clarify my stories, always with this will to rebuild the world.
