About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Y : Work on several collective and personnal art project in paris, Rotterdam, Zoetermeer and Beirut / C : project manager for european cooperation

ABOUT ME

Y : Main préocupation, being and time. Practice through time: growing seeds in books, in a glass pyramide that shapes life and count time, making sculptures with food and life process, using a candy box or a castle tower as a camera obscura, printing signs on fields for plane users (you are here…), painting, photographing, vidéotaping, drawing, printing, writing, breathing, loving. Believing that art is really smart when ego-less. The glance of consciousness is the stronger one. There are no rules. It’s easier to be free, real and true if there is no will to be recognize.
I was a though young man. I hurted myself a lot. I'm glad I've survived. Art saved me. I've shown my work in Paris and through Europe in galleries, art centers and alternative places. I mainly work on photographs those last years. What I'm interrested in is to reveal aspect of life that can't be seen with our eyes. I truely think that time is the main subject of photography. So i work in time relation that is specific of photography, low ligthn long time exposure. This is for time. Being is the other aspect. I look at it trough several medium, still using time as a revelation, through the mouvement in video and in a different way in photography, through the grow power or dislocation of vegetal being. Life is so, impossible to catch.
C : I grew up in the country side ; I developped since my teenager a sensitive relation with nature and people. I am pasionate by human relationship.

PHILOSOPHY

be present in the present, enjoy the present of life ( and it's sometime very hard !)
