For Labauvie, a line of steel is a line that is built in segments. The segments interpret a handwriting, the movements of the arm and the hand. It is a line that is strengthened through its interruptions, with each interruption creating intervals and moments of silence. This segmentation leads us to repetition, to rhythm, to music, to a sequence where one passes from the eye to the ear. Labauvie’s recent works are all readings, line by line, of the construction of a time of vision which joins that of listening.
