Artist statment

The question of the status of the artwork and its relation to the spectator is at the centre of my artistic practice. It is embodied in the choice of forms and objects I represent in my work and by the way I compose my installations. By reproducing packaging, tools, materials that are used in the creative process – and more recently, architectural elements (scaffolding, columns) –, I want to reveal the external structures of artwork’s conception, production and operation. My pieces are essentially staged so to mimic art presentation forms recognizable and understandable by all (the museum, the monument, etc.). Furthermore, I associate apparently incompatible or contrary elements to generate a questioning on our a priori. My sculptures are objects that push against an easy understanding. They are based on a simple idea that is then deconstructed and presented as a puzzle to solve. My work is therefore conceived to place the spectator at the centre of a reflexion on the value, originality and signification of what is given it to look at. Centre from which its gaze is directed to the edge of the frame. In that sense, it not only arouses curiosity, but encourage the watcher to use its sensitivity and develop critical thinking.
