What is the essence of a place?
This question is at the foundation of my work.
I’ve always felt affected by the environnement that surrounds me and have been intrigued by the effect provoked by a particular place. I’m fascinated by the aura of a specific territory, but more about how I can turn this place into a playground. With the word playground, I mean creating a collection of human stories, where the main character is the place.
In other words, transforming marginalized places - whether it be an island, a big city…into an imaginary place.
