“I work with electronic (video) and electrical (light, shadow, slide) technologies.
I like video for its duality: raw and intimate capture of reality, or limitless pictoriality of the electronic image.

I approach these approaches through two forms of writing, performance and film.

Performance as “real time editing”: synchronic language, formalism based on the manipulation of the substance of the video image (processing of the electrical signal and the light matter of the projectors). In this way, I explore the experience of the image: the relationship between the image and the viewer, between the imager and the machine, through the relationship of gesture to pictorial matter.

The film, broadcast in monitor installations: the “concrete film” in spatialized montage (fragments linked by space), allows us to question the power of the visible, the relationships between representation and reality. Or the “film tableau” projected as a temporalized painting (extension of the stained glass window), which links the problems of painting, sound and cinema. »
