Place, in the meaning of a space with its own identity, is a receptacle. During the five last years I have slowly seen my work coming to question place using drawing and my vocabulary of forms with thread, weft and fabric. I have been questioning precise gestures or actions such as enveloping, covering, protecting, and containing which led me to fields of architecture, structure and mapping territories. The passage between notions of “interior” and “exterior” is also a recurrent issue in my practice.

Some of my installations are made up of site specific wall drawings and clay sculptures. The specificity of the site is determinant: the parameters of the space, its form, its materials and all different scale components, its composition.

We can walk with our eyes. The elements and principles of my work function by stratum, layer, superimposition of times, looks, spaces but also by flood, influx and permeability. Streams of thought. However, the trail of the spectator is essential for letting the logics of the installation appear, using phenomenology and the imaginary at the same time.


What determines a space as a place? How does one build a space of one’s own
