Biography

The work of art displayed here is a sculpture that has no weight, even as it comes face to face with its own material presence. That material appears to be stronger but is continually beckoned by outcries emanating from locations that are empty. So as it runs its course, the sculpture does not come face to face with the round, by turns flirting with the floor, by turning avoiding it. The things that the sculpture cannot caress, because of the limitations of its shape, its presence allows it to embrace.
