Mathieu: I want a work about Talking Heads, one of my favorite bands
Me: But why, you're too young and your parents are too old to be fans of Talking Heads?
Mathieu: Well their music touched me when I saw the movie Wall street
This brief exchange of words is the synopsis of this work. The work has a system of two layers. Around a central symmetry gathers the colors of, beige, dark purple, taupe, black and white. This makes a mix of elegance and dark and cozy ambiance from the film with the true Wall Street and its clear and light facades and the diurnal activity going on there.
The second system is seventeen bands each in two parts, 5 mm in marbled paper (black and red) and 5mm of silver metallised paper. These seventeen bands are superposed and refers to the music of Talking Heds. Talking Head's music has a hard rhythm as someone walking forward with a firm step. The stripes start alternatively in silver either or marbled as if they bounced like money falling on a stone floor.
This is the story of a music that is retrospectively contrast another one. Another dumb music, that you only become aware of at the moment the movie ends and the credits begins accompanied by a haunting music from The Talking Heads called This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody). From the moment you hear this music, it is as a continuation, like if at Wall Street, although fluctuations in the stock market do not follow any algorithm, there is yet a rhythm, a music in the flow of money.
