Politics is the core of my practice. Through recognizable set-ups, I shift reality and push it to a point of no return to trigger an awareness. Therefore, what seems to be “normal” is called into question, its structure is revealed and people have to take a position and/or realize their own situation, responsibility and power. Like Mona Hatoum, “I try to articulate the political through the aesthetics of the work”, but “I choose to see art as an educational tool used to potentially reach out to everyone”, “A mean of action against social and individual reality.” (Collectif d’Art Sociologique, 1968-1980).
