A small empty bookshelf faces a giant pile of diverse books. A track of overlapping recordings of my voice reading excerpts from those same books can be heard in the room. 

le tri is a work on erudition, in its idealized and limited aspects. Humans write on and publish what they believe in. Humans read and base their reflections on what they read. Humans mesure the level of erudition in the weight of the pages they went through. Humans can't read everything. What knowledge will they sacrifice to the benefit of other texts? And most of all, what will motivate those choices? Using books as a tool, this installation invites anyone visiting the space to question their expectations concerning the usage of books and the noble aspect we traditionally links to them.
