Major project:

In Order to Talk With the Dead

Sometimes when we play, it is not always about having fun. There are bad games, bad players or bad tricks.

My practice concerns playing and its shadow. An ominous gap between the simple, playful and childish forms and the gaze of an adult upon them. I believe in a kind of common knowledge, a human intrinsic ability, that comes from children's universal games. That intersects with our collective memory of broader social interactions, even violence.
