statement

Memories and their role in personal identity are at the core of my work.

My main source of inspiration is the remembrances linked to my past, my family, the shared spaces we have lived in. The family house has been dwelt by many generations, and all sort of things have been piling up. Objects that I can use now to tell my story. 

Memories, my memory, their trace and passing of time are the basic concepts of most of my projects.

Repetition is very present at my work, either through the gesture or the object itself. I move in an aesthetic that eliminates the accessory, and in which order and repetition build a language that reduces expression to the most significant and important elements.

My aim is to develop these concerns by linking them to my current life and the places where I live, which involves adding new materials and the unexpected consequences towards a process of individualisation.
