In an interview with Paul Blais, entitled “Demonstrating not Elevating the Value of Clay“, I discuss my background, my practice and my current inspirations.
I joined the selection of artists and craftsmen of excellence of the Michelangelo Foundation. My profile is available for consultation on the Homo Faber Guide website and via the mobile application of the same name (Android OS / Apple Store).
Initially scheduled to open on the 9th of April, my 4th solo exhibition Gravité (eng. Gravity) will open on June 4th at Vallois gallery, and end on July 5th. The show will feature new works, including an exclusive piece that will be showcased from July 2nd on the occasion of Paris Gallery Weekend. Traces of this mysterious work will already be visible in the first days of the exhibition. Due to sanitary precautions, there will be no opening cocktail for this show but I will be welcoming visitors at the gallery on June 13th and 20th.
