Not to define but to mark lines, lines which determine a territory that is hard to demarcate since it is multiple and in flux. Every medium implies an autonomous proposition which can itself diverge, or can make the whole diverge, into the unforeseeable.


Several aspects of the work I have been developing over 15 years are included here:

The coast is the end of land and the beginning of the in nite. It is an intermediary zone where the imagination is free to wander, meditate or contemplate. The wild and pitiless waterline of the ocean produces a fascinating tension.

Photographs taken with a scanner transformed into a camera. Series begun in 2003.
The scanograms are like paintings: tangible results of manipulating the scanner as a photographic machine. The intention is transfigurative: between photography and painting.

Analogue development of photos taken by various digital means: telephone, compact or SLR. These images are assembled in pairs when a dialogue spontaneously occurs or a new perspective emerges: in the in-between...

-"La Garenne"Diane’s passage through the courtyard of a block of flats looking like a rabbit hutch.In the flat opposite, a young woman uses the double glazing of her window as a mirror, her bedroom as a fitting room..

- Filmmaking in different registers. Cinema marks my oeuvre since 1995. 
Often in the register of reality fiction, I make objects -- some momentary, others temporal -- with film or video, animation or reworkings of others' productions. 
The productivity orientated agricultural mechanics of "Georgics"; the silence of an aeronautic trade faire with "Le Bourget"; "La Garenne" ou Actaeon spellbound; "Meditation for a potato"; "Kipper skin"...
