My object of research centers on reclaiming the orientalist gaze depicted by colonial ethnographers. Within my art process, conceptual by nature, I use serendipity and chance encounters as a method of creation resulting in mixed-media installations of diverse assemblages giving way to satire and subversive semantics underlined by words, characters and iconographies found on discarded packagings, objects of consumption, architectural detail and everyday gesture through site-specific endeavors - while using commercial branding, food and technology in an oneiric manner to mistranslate informations. I am interested in ideas of consumption, mass production and mass media portrayals through the study of labor, colonial imaginary, body politics and remnants of the anthropocene.
The body of work deploys itself through installations, projections, performances, and experimentations with new technology greatly influenced by Alfred Jarry’s pataphysics who explored and satirized the bourgeoisie class through absurd films using methods of trompe l’oeil, decoupage, and a collage of various methods while inherently interested, myself and ontologically speaking, by studies of the anthropological imaginaries by structuralist philosophers such as Gilbert Durand and phenomenologist such as Maurice Merleau-Ponty. Through my commutes and travels, I collect found objects, street signages, and document casual events of the quotidian while often subverting corporate identities found on packagings as an anchor for satirical critique through semantic wordplay of incongruous nature.
