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.
