Artist statment

My sculptures are representations of objects that can be found at the periphery of artistic creation — like cardboard boxes and other wrapped forms, the contents of which are inaccessible. These somewhat banal objects and industrially made products allow me to evoke external structures of artwork production and presentation. I give them a new materiality and present them according to symbolic conventions (on pedestals or inside glass boxes). This allows me to work in the way of contextual transfer, which in turn allows creating unusual and improbable propositions that can awaken questioning about preconceived ideas concerning artwork. Through casting and molding, I thus explore themes such as uniqueness and originality; perception and value. Its in fact “by the negative” that I explore — that I turn on its head — these questionings; situating ambiguity at the heart of my practice. In other words, this posture (of ambiguity) is reflected throughout my work in the staging of some classic opposites that can be found in art history such as interior and surface, transparence and opacity, banality and preciousness, ephemeral and permanence, continuity and discontinuity, as well as the polarity container/content.
