The narratives and 22 drawings that constitute Black jacket, gray sweatshirt, gathered inside a book and brought to CRAC Alsace, enable Jorge Satorre to connect the interior of the art center, protected by its thick defensive walls, and the exterior, a garden that runs alongside. Indeed, these drawings document in detail the various positions of an anonymous flirting couple dressed in a black jacket and a gray sweatshirt, and serve as models for molds dug directly in the ground of the garden, holes in which concrete is poured and from which fragments of bodies, arms, legs, butts, hands, hips, stomachs are extracted. Remnants of desire that, split from the earth, will be laid out throughout an open art center now exposed to the elements.
