Statement

Depuis quelques temps, je travaille sur des " correspondances” issues de lettres. 
Visuellement cela donne un paysage diffracté en motifs. 
Cette matière hirsute crible mon expérience sans but. 
Cet espace de l'instant est le jeu des lettres entre moi et l'autre en constante erosion. 
Je procède par collage, je travaille sans méthode, sans inventaire, 
Je pourrais prétendre dévier par glissement de techniques et j'avance ainsi dans le chaos 
de ce que je tente de saisir. 
Mes études de latin et de grec m'avaient donné une attirance pour l'étymologie,
et c'est ici que l’éthymologie devient un lien dans cet épistolaire ; 
mes images se succèdent comme des mots évidés, des racines en miètes.
je rapièce. 
 
L'impression expérimentale m'aide à réaliser ces images enchevêtrées.
Depuis 2023, j'ai travaillé avec une vidéaste Christine Pierrard sur un médium entrelacé ; 
spiruline et film expérimental, de l'intérieur vers l'extérieur, nous manipulons 
des thèmes communs récurrents: le paysage par exemple et même sa fin peut être, 
la finalité n’est pas encore vue.
english Since 2019, I've been working on my epistolary "travellings" in the third space a diffracted lanscape as a result. This shaggy poetic material alters my daily times. This space of the moment is the play of letters between myself and another. But it's also the plastic manipulations that follow the words.
I proceed by collage, I work without method, without inventory,I deviate by slippage of technique and I thus advance in the chaos of what I try to seize.
My studies of Latin and Greek had given me an attracion for etymology,and it's here that it becomes a link in this epistolary; my images follow one another like hollowed-out words, I patch together a diffracted language. Through Ireland, and encounters, my Brussels "emporte pièce" side returns, sending me bac to ways of proceeding "en esprit d'escalier". Since 2019, experimental printing has been helping me realize these embedded images.
Lately, I have been working with a videast on an intertwined medium; spirulina and experimental film, from the inside out, we manipulate recurring common themes.

bio


        
1996 un Ba en graphisme à l'Institut Saint Luc m'ont permis de travailler dans le domaine du dessin animé à Londres et au Luxembourg. De retour à Bruxelles, j'ai participé à une exposition interactive sur les figures historiques du moyen âge islamique. Cette expérience déterminante, qui a développé ma connaissance des racines de la culture musulmane et de son impact sur la civilisation occidentale,
m'a amenée à monter des projets socio-artistiques pour diverses institutions
de cette ville multiculturelle.
Un retour aux études en 2012 m'a permis d'obtenir un master en dessin à l’Académiedes Beaux Arts de Bruxelles.
En 2015, avec le collectif cargo avons organisé deux grands ateliers avec des migrants grâce à un financement européen. En 2017, une résidence au Vanuatu a provoqué un twist qui m'a emmené en Irlande pour développer des compétences en gravure à l'atelier de Belfast Printworkshop. C'était un nouveau chapitre dans ma visée créative : le " voyage " épistolaire dans un troisième espace.
À Dublin en 2021, j'ai participé à l'exposition Silence. Elle a donné lieu à d'autres expositions comme celle du Festival du dessin de Tournai en 2022 et en 2023 à la Passenger Gallery.
2024 est engagée à la fois dans un processus solo et collectif de traversée des paysages.
 
english
A BA in Graphic Design from Saint Luc Institute led to Cartoon work in London/ Luxembourg.
Returning to Brussels to par4cipate in an interac4ve show on historical Arab figures.This pivotal experience which developed my knowledge of respect for the roots of Muslim culture and
its impact on western civilisation led to se:ng up socio-artistic projects for various institutions in this multicultural city.
A return to study in 2012 resulted in a Masters in drawing from the Académie des Beaux Arts de Bruxelles.
There was formed the collective Cargo which made a variety of projects:in Bruxelles and abroad.
In 2015 we had two major workshops with migrants with European funding. Then I was involved in a intercultural workshop with the Cisp human rights organisation in Algeria towards local artists.

In 2017 A fine art residency in Vanuatu caused a shin which took me to Ireland to develop printmaking skills at Belfast Print workshop.
It was a new chapter in my creative view: the epistolary ‘travelling’ in the third space. In Dublin in 2021, I was part of the Silence exhibition. It had been leading to other exhibitioat the Festival du Dessin de Tournai in 2022 and in 2023 at Passenger Gallery.

2024 is engaged both with a solo and collective process crossing sceneries.
