and Formation

University studies in Organic Chemistry in Corsica, punctuated by artistic research extended to various practices: theatre, dance, painting.
Dedicated exclusively to drawing since 2014.

Through my work, I question the notion of form and its relationship with its environment. Multiplied and amplified, a basic element has the capacity to edit new forms on a larger scale. Each level is endowed with its own organisation and aesthetics.
The Living, for example, from the simplest molecule to more complex structures such as DNA, cells, bodies and societies, is built only from basic chemical elements such as carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and azote. Yet each level of organisation presents unique and new forms, organisation and aesthetics.
