Exhibition history: Maison Patrimoniale de Barthète, Boussan, France in Fac-similé, a solo exhibition consisting of three museum interventions, June - August, 2006
In Simili, pattern motifs cut from French and Canadian synthetic grass carpet are arranged in the manner of a French garden on a model scaled foundation of limestone aggregate. The individual motifs originate in a 19th century faience tile pattern from the Fabrique Leclerc in Martres-Tolosane, Haute-Garonne, France.
