About

 

My research currently focuses on investigating — through visual narratives — experiences related to the effects and the presence of the forces of the living world in the living body, that seizes them through the affects, the percepts and the extra-sensorial.

 

I think that art, through the sensible universe and driven by a latent desire, can be a support to discuss the everyday life, the community and ways of life. To give us conditions to affirm and think about life. To transmit its pulse, to contaminate its surroundings. To dribble our ‘colonized’ unconscious and ‘un-anesthetize’ our decipherer body.
