NOT THE SEWING MACHINE.

Eliane's Singer treadle sawing machine, the one that generated subsidies from sewing work and filled the wardrobes of the children, and of their dolls. As well as her own wardrobe: Eliane used to cut, sew ornaments to dresses with white cotton fabric that he would cover "All-Over" with "cachets" ...

 

THIS sewing machine, it is THERE.

 

Immortalized

 

In concrete: he said he liked concrete because it fossilizes...

Suspended in time, the sewing machine.

 

Is it diffacting the other one ? The one from the sewing workshop of Georgette, the mother of Micheline? Breaths and sounds of the feminine world of fabrics scents? Complicities, whispered secrets, laughters, the LAUGH ? THE laugh? That of Pachatte? Echo of the origins of the link, longtime so close to the hotel room in Grasse? The time of the stories telling the things he was drawing, Armandito?

 

MOTHER'S DAY ...

 

Woman, women, this sewing machine, which is rediscovered duplicated in multiples, even later. Sacred, exhumed from the concrete gangue to say and show the interior of things with the cut. And be accomplished to complete the story, in its title to write a destiny, Arman signs: Mother's day

THE ETERNAL FEMININE.
