Iím a multi-disciplinary artist working primarily in the field of sculpture, and my pieces take the form of installation, print-making, performance, video, and some photography. Trust, intimacy, authenticity, and humor are the conceptual driving forces expressed throughout my work.
My creative process begins with personal experiences (some trivial, some not) which I then expand upon to construct straightforward conceptual works that can be read with a wider cultural commentary. I try to make work that becomes clearer and more resonant the more time one is able to spend with it.
I was born on the border between France and Switzerland, but received neither citizenship. Though both France and Switzerland wanted to call me their own, neither could and I inherited my American passport through my parents. This personal history was a point of inspiration for some of my earlier work, and when people ask where Iím from I switch from France to Switzerland depending on on my current mood. I donít have an accent. I do have misplaced nationalistic notions.
My latest projects include a performance piece which will be executed in private and exhibited as a video projection, the male installment of "Rubbings"
(a work based on everytime I mastubated when I was 27), and a wall sculpture loosely depicting a recurring dream I used to have. I'm also (very slowly) trying to turn "Nipples at the Met"
into a navigable & searchable website and database.
