Text by the artist:
Five o'clock tea. but you never catch a
glimpse of the fairy ... she keeps her distance.
André Breton is there, 18 months old, but the fairy? Is she there or not there? It is the
hour of traces. Traces of the fairy or ...?
The clown is dancing on the tea plate ... drinking tea and - or - catching birds.
... traces of a distant fairy!?
(The title is inspired by two surrealistic art works: The painting "Distance de
Fée" by Yoshiko and "Le Boule suspendue ou l'Heur des Traces" by
