In musical language, deconstructing a pre-existing harmony offers new creative perspectives. Sampling, for example, combines sounds and patterns sometimes randomly. I realize this kind of combinations on a visual level. The discovery, during a trip to Cuba, of altarpieces of the cult of Palo monte, gave me the idea of ​​associating my images with an organic world with the intention of creating a singular atmosphere. With this in mind, I have associated very large black and white photographic prints (2.70 meters high) with real elements such as potatoes scattered on the ground, a bunch of oranges hanging in a net, mackerel vacuum packed on the ceiling, etc. I am looking for an open dialogue between the street (the outside world) and the studio. I want to reconnect with this type of association: paintings and photographs (street markets, religious altars, food displays).
