The material I use in my works, which can range from sculpture, painting, installation to video, is the waste of the society where I live. Acquired through constant wanderings, a tireless curiosity, a sometimes ephemeral, others unbearably perennial affection. Some garbage from others is the lode where I excavate (write) possibilities. The crossing of findings advocates a pertinent search for meaning for this new body, for this discarded matter now rescued by the intervention. The work is elastic and does not stick to a theme, a technique or a support, it is mixed, it is trans, it is human. Then there are several laws of chance that guide the completion, exhibition, sale and storage of the products of this self-taught personal journey.
