During the exhibition, the artist invites people to share their feelings; a passion, a break-up, a secret, emotions are shared on the spot or later by email, in order to find the date, the time and the precise location where the memory to be integrated into the card is found.
COMPOSITE is a collective map where earthly emotions are in correspondence with the stars.
The protocol evolves in confidence, woodcuts on stone, acrylic or transfer paper representing constellations are then composed from the precise alignment of stars.

Introduction by Mathieu LAVEAU
Are the stars the reflection of our world? Billions of points of light shine in an infinite space, reflecting our individual lights in a finite world of matter… mirror of our beings incarnated on our sublime planet. We choose to unite on Earth, and here our stars are connected by invisible threads. Like Osiris and Isis, like Orion and Sirius which are linked, forever united by incredible geometries, we can live on Earth this harmony of the union of the masculine and the feminine, in an unconditional love.
Let us know how to look at the stars and their embraces, in order to feel the loving force of the Creator.
The Work of Vidya invites us to do so, forcing us to imagine new lines connecting the stars, to tell stories inspired by the position of these stars that illuminate our night.

The LANDMARKS represent human embraces studded with celestial objects. They are engravings on wood or acrylic support. In the course of her work on the typology of connections, VidyaKelie imagined that she could interpret the unique traces of her key memories on the scale of the universe.
These extraordinary moments for her, the places where she experienced them, had traced a unique network in space-time that she wanted to recreate.
The artist entwined her feelings with the position of the celestial objects of those days, drawing constellated embraces.
Every human being lives his or her own history, intimately linked to others through time and space, creating invisible connections that are constantly changing. Vidyakelie wants to gather around her and her plastic expression a community that also senses this anchoring. In her Composite project, she links the LANDMARKS collectors on a map and makes it possible to recreate a stellar space on earth!
