Trash City is a fiction. Its starting point is a wander in the growth of signs and esthetics feelings in our urban spaces. This wandering take form into « sculptures-fictions » made out of basic materials and trash. In between destruction and reconstruction the works are made in-situ and the exhibition space become itself the characters and the stage. Trash City is a fragmentary cinematographic object in which scattered elements compose a story expending in the space.
