Major project:

I want to make something huge

My recent projects relate back to the idea of ability to adapt, consent to new situation and the triumphing of flexibility and efficiency in the post-industrial world. Using futile and precarious structures, fragmented systems of desire are re-negotiated to observe the alienation of the body within transient architecture. Continuously displacing models and inconsistent monuments, draws on the presence and absence of things within the functional world. Porous and temporary materials are continuously re-set like a ballet mécanique to engage with ideas surrounding the use of mass construction and delimiting presence.

    In 2014, I founded Offline Press, an independent publishing label distributed in United Kingdom, USA and Europe. The main publication : Perpetual Inventory, unveils the creative process in sculptural practice. Showing the steps of sculpture creation (research, models, material used, studio...), the publication aims to give an image of sculpture outside the gallery space. Covering the process of creating, editing, designing and distributing, the label is also a curatorial platform for exhibition shows including worldwide artists.
