« Grotte » is an inner exploration, a journey that I thought up and created during the first confinement following the appearance of Covid 19. It proposes to enter the meanders of my brain, a labyrinth made up of my thoughts, research since this period from which I still find it difficult today to get out. Like a hermit crab, I sometimes feel stuck in my shell of mental isolation. The idea of this project is therefore to explore these different galleries of the brain, which could be likened to elements that could be found in a cave, whether underground passages, galleries, chasms, stalagmites, groundwater etc. This journey illustrates the traces of the upheavals that forced isolation can cause and shows a pattern of thought that can be described as unusual, with a desire to go elsewhere, to escape this condition. There are speleologists who shut themselves up there on purpose in caves, this experience aims to allow them to get out.
