The Stain usually stands for the undesirable. It is the stigmata, it reveals a mistake. Beyond this unfounded existence, it can sometimes be confused with the Sign – as it is the case, for instance, in the musical notation, where the note is indicated with a single dot. Augustin Maurs’s project plays on the limit between the definite meaning of the sign and the arbitrary appearance of the stain. The “Found Melodies” preserve the flaws of memory, the accidental traces and the indifference of time.
