“My work interrogates elegiac themes (love lament, nostalgia, etc.) through sculpture, painting and video. I use numerous referents from classical lyrical literature, love songs and sugary pop-culture clips, which I combine with superstitious symbols and visual motifs drawn from the great cities I love and where I’ve lived: Saigon, Beirut, Tunis…

This multiplicity of referents invites us to draw a parallel between the chaos of human emotional life and a wandering in an imaginary geography, an affective geography in an area I like to call the ‘South of Nowhere ‘: an immense desert bordered by the great inland sea, where monstrous, dusty and gigantic cities bloom here and there, smelling of roses and iron.”
