Lines of Escape. As a “user of space”\, Mira Sanders develops her personal  “journal” step by step (pas à pas) and\, rather than drawing up an “inventory” of space\, she “invents” it. Using different media and methods\, she  produces pictural\, sound-trac ked transpositions of a relationship with the  world consisting of encounte rs with other people and places. These are the  fruit of her journeyings ne ar and far: from Brussels to Beirut\, Charleroi to  Famagusta\, Namur to Ve nice\, via China… And as she goes\, the artist takes  hold of the word “rea lity” in its plurality\, even writing it into new phrasings.

\n

Thinking of “these makers of portulans [illuminated parchment maps which  first appeared at the end of the 13th century showin g a succession of ports  and havens\, while the sea areas are webbed with g eometrical lines corresponding to the points of the compass] who saturated the coastline with  names […] until land was separated from sea by a contin uous ribbon of  text”\, Georges Pérec pointed out that the discovery and co nquest of new  parts of the world had to be accompanied by their own form o f “graphie”.

\n

In the collection of wor ks she presents in Lines of Escape\, Mira Sanders returns to this primary n eed to “describe space: name it\, plot it…”. She exploits the potential of line as a tool for constructing a representation\, giving  material form to the boundaries and areas of a surface or piece of land\, as  a continuous feature\, real or imaginary\, separating two contiguous elements.  Line of force or line of flight\, touch line\, line of the horizon. They exist to   declare space and make it visible\, so that one knows where one is and is   able\, again\, to cast off.
