My practice is mainly in sculpture, installation and public intervention. I’m interested to the contradictory reports, whether emotional, physical or carnal, that the Man maintain with himself and his environment. How he has rooted the entire conception of his existence on its uniqueness, systematizing and reducing it to its size, so as to make it more perceptible and to forget the immeasurability of its scale and strength.
In these times of crisis, my works address political and societal issues through different notions of memory, anticipation, repetition, transformation and mutation. They try to demonstrate our fragility and our vulnerability to the inevitable… Although it is question of cycles and perpetual movements, it is especially paralysis and immobility in the face of the excesses of the world that it is about!
