ROOM FOR ERRORS

Hochparterre

Since 2007, I have developped a personal universe influenced by corporate imagery, which I parody in chaotic and disquieting drawings, videos installations and objects.
The precarity of existence, the pressures of social habits and the contained violence in authority are the background of many of my works which associate mind-numbing, repetitive tasks ( stamping, copying) with immediate, improvised situations influenced as much by a comic author such as André Franquin as by conceptual artists such as Douglas Huebler and On Kawara.

The term «sketch» actually applies in every possible sense to my works: making use of multiple drawings, notes and intuitions i mold into my final installations, images or performances i set tragi-comical scenes up, absurd decors inhabited by archetypal figures, such as the clumsy and mute office clerk, in order to point out the contradictions of a world full of burned-out competitive heroes and glorious bored winners.
