“I draw and make sculptures because I like to avoid words. My irrepressible need to build with clay, hempcrete, industrial objetcs, textile and even plasticine is more telling. These ensembles of shapes are like pawns in a large, modular game with an infinit number of possiblities. They evoke many different things, but pinning them down is more problematic; are they sexual? Vegetal? Animal? I aim to encourage this ambiguity, and hope to provoke curiosity, discomfort, sometimes disgust. What ultimately guides my work, however, is representing nature, parts of our bodies, our insides and the fluids that circulate in all living things. After working on a series of pieces for a while, the repetitions of my gestures start to make sense – all the uncertain decisions taken during the process lead to this. It works. This is why I make sculptures."
