The precarity of a coastline, its scriptlessness: a Côte d’Azur seen from fake forgery and other collective bruises.

Bead threader Charlotte Eynaudi lived on the Côte d’Azur, in Nice, for most of her life. She would go from palace to palace at dawn in order to fabricate fake jewellery that the rich, mostly Russians, tourists would exhibit at galas while keeping the original pieces in their safe, back at the hotel. Years later, after having carried her name across many dances, I inherited from her watch. My mother decided to melt some more gold (probably some teeth), get rid of the watch and complete the gold chain, forging a form that registers the presence of what has dissolved, a form that also imprints the loss and the silence surrounding this disappearance in its very presence.
