This selection of images is derived from research projects from the past two years. Some of them resulted from direct documentation produced in different locations. Others are archival material from complementary research of these physical explorations. Structured in two independent scrolling columns, it is possible to make new connections, with images positioned side by side taken from different searches. This format reproduces somehow the wall of my studio during the research of each project.

My entire production, proteiform, adapts itself to my investigations. Considering that the notions of exploration and infiltration are very close, my practice is part of a process of physical movement (urban walk, suburban territory exploration …)like a prerequisite to the work’s elaboration. At the same time I proceed to research (reading various documents, archives, narratives, legends) in order to place the context in another T instant than the one of my presence on the territory.
My projects often take tentacular shapes. A part of the works (actions or installations) lies in the direct infil- tration in specific places (oceanic space, forests, fallow land, space being rebuilt, scrap of the human activity, etc) when another part is destined to the exhibition space (sound works, installations, sculpture, books, videos, etc). Urban legends, contemporary myths or scientific research are often summoned in my projects. Forms of narratives that I consider like invitations to travel, a mental wandering.
