LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
I am a visual artist. In 1991, I graduated in graphic and product design from the E.S.D.I School of Industrial Design in Paris.
I organized artistic workshops in various schools with young children for 12 years.
I lived abroad in China for 5 years, and I currently reside near Paris, where I am developing my artistic project.
We are aware of how fragile life is!
By using the geopolitical and environmental situation as a reservoir from which I draw issues that resonate with my personal history and current concerns, I have chosen to focus my work on the following reflection: if we lack kindness, what will become of life on Earth... in the form of the project Réfléchissons-«y… ( Let’s Think About It…)
In this project, I concentrate on a Memory Work surrounding armed conflicts, natural disasters, and inappropriate human behaviors in the quest for power, beauty, fragility, and resilience of life, through the exploration of Man and his interrelation with the surrounding world.
I create, like an advocacy, series of metaphorical pieces linked to a historical or fictional context. These series currently take the form of sculpture, bas-reliefs, and/or installations.
I strive for a simple, delicate, and repetitive aesthetic representation where the perception of violence, sadness, and pain coexists with delicacy, softness, transparency, and lightness...
I primarily use the transformation and valorization of discarded materials, and I mainly work with paper material in the form of recycled paper and natural fibers, along with pins and family archives.
I seek a balance between messages and artistic creations to provide a space where reflection and contemplation can coexist, and where awareness of Man's role in his environment can be initiated. I aim to offer a sensory experience to those who witness the artwork, leading to reflection.
In my manufacturing process, I primarily work with wet materials, which are then agglomerated and dried. To emphasize the notion of fragility, I have chosen to use very little glue for some assemblies. This deliberate choice adds a dimension of great vulnerability to the artwork, comparable to the fragility of life.
WHO I AM
An artist concerned by the balance between the artistic expression and the messages in my artworks.
