Graduated from the Higher School of Decorative Arts in Strasbourg.

This set of collages and assemblies is made up of recovered photographs and objects (souvenirs brought back from holidays, decorative objects, figurines, etc.). My work is akin to a form of anthropology or archeology, whose collection of artefacts serves as a starting point to observe our cultures and their patterns: family meals, ceremonies, holidays, Sunday outings, dreams stereotypical… More broadly, I comment on the way in which territorial, agricultural or tourist policies configure us. I thus reconstruct miniature worlds to transcend the weight and the shackles of our cultural habits.
