Traces, l'univers de Didier Mahieu

Patric Jean & 14' — 2000

When, he discovered that his granddad had been a professionnal spy, Didier Mahieu, a painter, came across a lot of people whose only traces of having ever existed were the police and the administrative records left behind the family home. As a painter, Didier Mahieu made up his mind to give back to some of these people a face, a body … This artistic attempt to give shape and face to people unknown, ordinary people caught in the cogwheels of life, constitutes an emotional tribute to humankind, to the individual: unique, soon gone yet irreplaceable.
