The obsession with the given time is the cause of this artistic practice. Time is everything, time is change, stagnation, memory, future, expectation, hopelessness, the sublime, rhythm, repetition, redoing, destroying, light and dark. There is no opposing concept of time imaginable. The passing of it is perhaps the only thing one can ever be sure of.
Maxime Brigou's practice has it’s main focus on trying to capture the idea of time and space through actions and shapes. There is no concrete, everlasting manifestation. The visibility of these new works depend on the movement of the natural light. You don't have to be in the right place or at the right time, you simply have to be there and the more you are there, the more of it’s manifestations you will see. You can never fully possess the complete image.
The translucent canvas that is stretched behind the glass obstructs the view but also ensures that the 'image' behind it becomes visible at all. Without it, the shapes and colours wouldn’t make sense. You need it to thread together what you (think) you are seeing
