My praxis inhabits a zone of visual encounters between drawings, acts, writings, paintings, objects and thinking. Among the concepts framing my artistic research is possible to determine three notions: the un-domiciled, the echoicity and the inexistent.

En tant qu’artiste visuel et docteur en philosophie, mon travail tourne constamment autour de la ligne imaginaire que la culture occidentale a créée entre l’art et la philosophie. En ce sens, les tentatives de Deligny ont été le point de départ d’un nouveau cycle de recherches qui m’a amené à travailler davantage avec et à travers l’invisible, le moindre, le disparu, en cartographiant leurs formes à travers des gestes en dehors d’une grille fixe.
