    Abraham Poincheval was born in 1972 in Alençon in France. He lives and works in Marseille. This work is the cristallisation of a wandering knight of the twenty- first century, a journey after a battle, lost or won. His journey is endless, crossing numerous territories and combining various stories. This knight’s coats of arms could be those of art, even if they are not visible on his armour. This protection, designed as a shell, is at the same time a vehicle, a portable living space, and a premonition of robotisation. It magnifies the body but also hides it, in perfect symbiosis with the landscapes traversed on his travels.
