CV, statement and biography


My series are constructed as a dialogue, a questionning or a game between two distinguish and opposite spaces. I'm looking to creat links, bridges or ruptures between the height and the emptyness, between what is tangible, physical and what is not. To interrogate and transgress the boarders between the visible and the invisible. YA
