In niveaux (2014) and A la ligne (2013), Clément juxtaposes measuring and graphing tools with kitsch images of nature. The former contains a retro postcard of a mountain scene next to a metal triangle ruler, and the latter shows a graph-paper cut-out superimposed onto a digitally distorted image of a mountain scene. The ruler and graph paper suggest mathematical precision, whereas the postcard and photo allude to mythologies and narrative—and yet, they are both a means to understanding the natural world and some of the many ways we attempt to flatten and control it. Clément engages nature again in La Harde (2013), an installation of several deer-crossing signs grouped together in a grassy field. In this work he takes the familiar sign, designed to represent and signify the existence and behavior of deer, and then translates it literally. Thus, in an absurdist gesture, a herd of signs comes to represent a herd of deer.
