statement

"My work is an idiosyncratic experience of the notion of sedimentation, both in the physical and metaphysical sense. Mediterranean basin & sea, archives, documents, reconstructions, gestures, peripatetic  & a sense of listening, take the viewer on a poetic meander, through creative comparison of reality, of languages and of narrations."
