Literary synopsis

L'Onéiropompe (the dream-bearer cat) is a thriller. The search for the decapitated head of a black basalt statue is the excuse for a journey that begins in a hotel room, meanders through a train compartment and a house, and ends a Mediterranean island.

Relation of the novel to the artist’s practice
