I am lucky to have the opportunity to share my feelings and sensations with the citizens of many cities in the world where I exhibit (France, Danemark, Germany, Turkey, South Korea, Switzerland…). I came to France thirty-five years ago. I am an artist and I exercise my art freely.
My art can also be monumental when I have to respond to space. Public space is a space where society expresses itself. It is important that art brings its vision.
My sculpture « Mediterranean Body » represents a body stranded on the banks of the Seine in Paris with a foot in the water.
It can be a woman or a man, someone lying and having a rest, or it can also be the symbol of a cry for help.
My sculpture therefore takes place in the city to summon its inhabitants and passers-by.
I challenge them, I try to upset their habits.
It is by the representation of the figure that I share my convictions.
I think art remains the strongest communicator as far as touching people’s minds.
To realize that every « local » phenomenon becomes « global ».
Like questioning identity with objectivity by touching the heart that looks.
As symbolizing the coming together of peoples, cultures and the arts.
I act on a small scale facing the large scale of challenges.
The body is a language without geography and without language barriers.
My art questions what we are, what we do.
And if my art could generate increasing awareness and solidarity, then I would be able to share fully what art gives to me: happiness.
