Auville works with construction cement. Applying techniques used in the construction and ship building industries, he spreads the cement over Ursalite (high-density foam panels), creating pieces ranging in size from one to eight square meters.
In this work, straight lines are not colours but materials. Side by side, off-black and off-white becomes purer, more intense than when seen separately. Both appear below or above the other, but at the end each one is has its own identity.
