Born 1999, I am an artist of French and Swiss citizenship, I started metalworking as a hobby while I was in high school, and continued teaching myself for 5 years through experimentation and online ressources. In 2018 I decided to go after what makes me happy, and I have since joined the metal art programme at HDK-Valand, Gothenburg university where I continue to develop my artistic practice. Having followed strict scientifical educations before, my main interest now lies in material expression and materiality.
Artist statement :
I connect with the strange mixture of irregular and man-made, bizarre forms that are a result of an instinctive and relieving process, like a crumpled piece of paper or ripped fabric. These phenomena are ambiguous, calm and active, tense and relaxed, like memories of a transformation.
My work oscillates between the fascination for uncontrollable and the fear of loosing grip on the real.
I explore these expressions in metal through a variety of techniques like forging, welding or grinding.
