Since 2016, my work has revolved around the notion of perception. Through the memory process I aim to question the role our memories play in our comprehension of the present environment and our relation to others.

After studying graphic design, I wrote and directed my first short-movie documentary called "The Lords" focusing on the wait that teenage migrants have to endure before their status as a minor is determined by the french state. Intrigued by the vision they have of their environment, I imagined a project that would let them express more directly their sensations and feelings.

"Les madeleines sonores" is staged in a social context dealing with various factors such as globalisation, migratory flux...questioning the relationship people have with their environment and with other people.

I am open to all art mediums and I am currently seeking collaborations around this project.
