When our lips speak together 2023
N.Lichtig, When our lips speak together, oil on canvas, variable sizes, 2023 (selection)
The paintings are echoing readings of texts by Luce Irigary, Clarice Lispector, Danielle Cohen-Levinas, Monique Wittig, Anne-Marie Albiach, Georges Perec, Bohumil Hrabal, Lionel Naccache, Jules Michelet, Silvia Plath, as well as diary entries.
These paintings are not an attempt to remember, to recall, to remind me of where exactly these noted fragments came from and why I had noted them. Rather, they speak of a relative oblivion, of elements of understanding that have been lost, erased, as a result of successive transformations, and which, paradoxically, thanks to this gap, are reconsidered, recognised, reinvented by the painting.
When our lips speak together, Anne+, Paris
