Since I studied law at the University of Paris, I have been fascinated by the absolute power of financial and geopolitical regulations.
Over the years, I created series of paintings and videos on the subject of the dehumanizing tendencies of global regulations. The ensuing disconnection between norms and reality drove me to question why we are so compliant to follow the rules in disregard of our own natural individual survival.
My current project is nourished by geopolitical and financial conflicts in our global environment.
My work often includes the animal figure to link nature to mankind. The law of nature is replicated by societies in a deviant way which makes us losing our natural instinct. Nature is replaced by structured societies taking over the individual. These societies are self-expanding and ignore our personal well being.
A white bunny appears repeatedly in many of my artwork. This humanized yet terrifying persona symbolizes the globalization at all levels.
