“Sometimes I don’t know where this dirty road is taking me; sometimes I can’t even see the reason why.”

Townes van Zandt

One could read Martin Heidegger in Townes van Zand’s infamous lines, but also Robert Walser, Paul Celan, Aby Warburg or Mad Max. Myriorama is substantially a paranoiac-critical method, that in the words of Salvador Dali is “a spontaneous method of irrational knowledge based on the critical and systematic objectivity of the associations and interpretations of delirious phenomena». Une affaire de montage, Myriorama reassembles heterogeneous ready-made element and fabricated artefacts, thus proposing an intertwined understanding of the common and the personal as complementary agents. Myriorama leads to no final conclusion; rather, it eventually presents a constant movement of composition and decomposition of the collected material that like the eponymous game offers infinite combinations of the same image. Open to interpretation Myriorama never substitutes experience with commentary.
