Latence | Ismaïl Bahri
Ismaïl Bahri's 'Latence' series is composed of the interlacing of milk and ink on glass. In each piece, Bahri uses a brush to form a circle of milk and ink; it is then left to it's own devices to coagulate, evaporate and dry. During this drying process the glass plate on which the milk and ink lay is rotated to create a thin deposit. These images are latent as they are slow to appear. Latence is based on organic evolution, each work constitutes a unique step in Ismaïl's research.
