Please introduce yourself, describe what your artistic practice is focused on at the moment?
At the moment I’m reading a few books about the developments in interior design during the Cold War era through the political perspective. I’m curious about the relationships between politics and aesthetics, and since interior design after WWII became another battleground for ideologies I’m studying this period in order to be more precise and delicate in my process of selecting materials for the arrangements.
What are your real and desired conditions for art production?
My current conditions are: absence of studio space, complete dependence on a given budget from an inviting institution and incapability of storing my pieces after an exhibition. In fact, my artistic method is to a large extent defined and shaped by these conditions, so obviously, in desired conditions, my artistic practice would be quite different.
What are your experiences of collaborative art and educational practices so far?
I’m not much experienced in collaborative art since I was participating only in a few collaborative projects so far. Concerning educational practices, I’d say I have way more experience because one of my current occupations is teaching at a drawing studio.
How do these times of economic, social and ecological crises affect your art practice?
As far as I can see, it affects my artistic inflexion (certain artistic decisions that I take during my process), apparently my productivity, certainly my working rhythm.
