"In Simon de Pury's selection of my self-portraits, there are 4 drawings 70 x 50 cm, made in 2008, 2014, 2016 and 2020. The first of the series is made with fabrics to represent my clothing. At the time, I also used fabrics in painting and sculpture, which was close to a voodoo practice, but without really being aware of it. I also listened to a lot of music with my little USB music player when I was drawing. I used it a lot later when I drew in museums. This self-portrait is symbolically important since it announces the many museum drawing sessions I did afterwards, where this little device was as important as my drawing material. He writes at the top "with USB god", and the date is written at the bottom in three places: 30 (left shoulder). 7 (neck). 2008 (right shoulder), a bit like signing before a prayer."
