On a scale of 1 to 24 raises questions about the cognition of a work by using the former bank vaults. Two similar structures, but of different scale, each comprised of a black cubic frame and a hanging piece of tarpaulin on which grids are drawn freehand, are separately placed in two rooms. Experiencing these two rooms, which are almost identical in size and in architecture, the «déjà vu» which then operates tests our apprehension of a module where the border between the model and the reduced model (with two distinct time scales) is complicated.

Introduction

Born in 1979, lives and works in Paris

Always built on the same way, vehicle and character, the series Knot of Jerome Allavena begins as an ordinary story. A man is hit by a truck, an old lady cries in front of a backhoe, a woman comes out of her car to go shopping while another one hitchhikes...

A narrative is in place. The viewer is led to imagine the scene, a road, a parking, a mall... the actions that take place or took place and the feelings associated with them, discontent, waiting, despite ... Time seems frozen. Yet the «story» is not built by Jerome Allavena in a common way. In the form of a genealogic tree, the first two drawings merge to create a third. They are no longer fixed, clear or unexpected, a crash occurred. The lines give way to leave room for future abstraction and form a knot. Close to a scientific world, the artist adds new values that fraction and interpolate reality to create an intermediate character between reality and fiction. 
The shape of the vehicle or person is sometimes found in this inbetween. Jerome Allavena presents within his drawings their principle of construction. The demonstration, very important in his work, allows to operate by going back and forth between the representation and the genesis of the drawing, abstraction. «Undermined,» it is experienced by the artist in a endless principle.
