The wall is the two-dimensions transposition of a story telling together the matericity, the colours, the craft tradition and African landscapes, the primordiality of the earth, the antique strength of minarets, the steamy mutability of the dunes in the desert: these are chapters in history that the wall profile tells to passers-by. Eventually the epilogue, the water, the ocean standing out and, with his horizon, gathering in a unique line the complex and plasticity shapes of the landscape.
