I studied in the Ecole Régionale des Beaux-Arts in Rennes (France). I work as a scenographer, theater maker, performer and installation artist. In 1992 I began to work as a stage painter and sculptor at the Opera in Rennes, le Théâtre National de Bretagne, Le Théâtre des Amandiers in Nanterre, MC93 in Bobigny, le Théâtre de la Ville in Paris, Le théâtre de l’Instant in Brest, among others. from 1997 on I was in charge of the visual installations in the performances of El Teatro de los Sentidos (an international company based in Spain), and became then technical coordinator, scenographer and performer for this company for many years during our international tours in many European theaters and festivals.I settled in Belgium in 2005. I conceive and realize sensorial and poetical installations and performative spaces. My performances have been seen in different cultural institutions or festivals in Belgium, France, Denmark, Italy, Austria,... I also work and collaborate as a set designer and/or performer for different companies and projects across the world.
Exploring, researching and experimenting are a big part of my artistic practice. This is why I co-founded INHEPI, an international network of artists researching in the field of interactivity, participation and immersion of the audience in performances and art in general. INHEPI's members are performers, actors, theater makers, dancers, space designers, sound designers. We hold an almost yearly session to experiment and create spontaneous short performances starting from a predefined short list of questions. We share those performances with invited audience or in public space as we value feed-back from the public as a key element of our artistic growth. The sessions are also intended to question the possibility of defining methodology for collective creation.
As an addition to my work, I give workshops and masterclasses in different countries around the themes of the poetics of space, the nature of a performer in a sensorial performance, the creation of sensorial images, immersive performances.
