Intermittent Boundaries






On the occasion of his first published monograph, the artist David Coste invited some friends and relatives to write definitions of words or groups of words that he has chosen for us.
These small texts come to play with the art works, drawings, interviews and images present in his book.

Entresol
L’espace des possibles Lumières de Roland Barthes
Landwaste
A surface — not necesseraly flat — of varying size where rocky or cement masses accumulate. It’s not unusual in certain regions to see flourishing of grasses and other young common shoots. Formerly, an area ravaged by human buildup.


Extraction
The action of extracting, to take out of one’s milieu all or part of the mass, solid or liquid, physical or mental. It can be applied to a terrain, a world, human or animal society, to ideas. What results is often an orifice, a caesura, sometimes an exclusion that can be associated with emptiness.


Collective
Universal ensemble of diverse and complementary individuals who, without agreeing about everything, work, feel moved by ans are passionated about a common idea or cause. A training that would allow individuals to affirm themselves : Owing to Lack of Interest, Tomorrow Has Been Cancelled.*


Recurrence
Term used for certain artistic projects that regularly use conceptual materials and plastics. Thirty years ago, it was common to see several people modeling and drawing hillcocks. This amusing pratice which became quite an obsession was supposed to enable them to discover a utopian (military) site.

Owing to Lack of Interest, Tomorrow Has Been Cancelled is the Title of an Article by Warren Chalk from 1969. (Note by the Author)
