"The axonometric drawing of an imaginary islet that comes straight from our minds at a time of the end of confinement, and therefore of isolation, is the trigger for this work. It shows an islet (in Brussels), a sort of in-between place between the scale of the neighbourhood and that of the home. After spending weeks locked away at home, this place and its collective dimension seemed obvious to us. It was the perfect place to imagine a new way of living together. All we had to do was move on from a collection of individual gardens to a common space. For us, the research does not focus so much on the question of whether such a shared space functions properly, or whether it is relevant, as on the avenues for reflection that this space can provide. In this sense, it seems necessary to approach the work from another, perhaps more formal, angle. In fact, this is what we did during our discussions prior to producing the drawing. We weren't talking primarily about the common space, but about what creates it: the opening up of the adjoining wall".
