in 4 dimensions:
The first dimension: My childhood in a small and close-knit family.
My mother instilled in me the values of consideration of others, generosity
and kindness. I never heard anyone in my family criticize someone else.
We never talked about the dangers of the world. My father and mother
created a nest, with my sister, 4 years older than me, who I learned
to get along with, and who taught me that competition was unnecessary.
I also have a brother, one year younger than me, with whom I have a
very close relationship. In my childhood I learned to balance being
dominated with being dominant. We grew up in the countryside in a small
village, our garden was surrounded by cherry trees.
The second dimension: My
adolescence, with the discovery, in a suburban college, of the mad world
and its dark side: its violence, its divisions and its mistreatments
on all levels. In 1990 my family moved 20 km from Paris, to the Val
The third dimension, with
my first adult decisions: The main decisionduring
this period was to challenge the education system, western culture and
formation. Then to call into question human identity. It's with this
question, "who are we at our core?" that I began my 7-year
stay in South and Central America. My first choice and action as an
adult was to practice meditation. My main preoccupation was how to go
beyond fear, how to better understand my emotions in order to assert
my will. In my twenties I had a lot of energy, and I wanted to learn
how to manage this energy and what to do with it. When I was 22 I went
into deep meditation; I spent one year entirely closed off from the
world in a studio to express and explore my memories through painting
and practicing meditation. I was able to develop a unique sensibility
and experience of perception. These experiences allowed me to trust
in myself and to question the media and current capitalist system. I
made the decision to move to South America , and then to the Carribean,
and I also spent three years in Guatemala, living for the most part
without electricity and running water. I lived with Native Americans
and experimented with their memories and knowledge. My closest friends
were shamans. During this period I also had a one-year stay in Australia
and the United States.
The fourth dimension, from
2004 to 2020: I returned to Europe in 2004, and decided to reintegrate
into the capitalist system in order to develop my artwork and to share
my experiences with western culture.
Since then, I have been sharing my artistic work, which has been complicated
to communicate, because the art world is so saturated and also closed.
I also threw myself into working with the upper management of companies
in the energy, transport, and defense industries. I tried to share my
artwork with, and to inspire, CEOs and managers. I also have tried to
balance my personal life between North and South, East and West. Through
my work I have become a connection between disciplines and fields of
knowledge, by studying physics, biology, philosophy, and I have learned
many techniques to further the reconciliation of industry and art.
