Collection of 19th century wax seals, placed on the Mayor of Lyon’s personal desk

From the artist’s own private collection, these antique seals stand quietly and elegantly, their monogrammed faces concealed. Bearing their previous owners’ initials, this collection of signatures, here absent of ‘sign’, considers this personal tool - both as imprint and object that permits to create this imprint.

Intervention presented during La Biennale de Lyon en Résonance à Paris. The use of the Mayor of Lyon’s personal desk was specially requested by the artist and exhibited, as found, in his own private office in Paris.
