HOME Curriculum Vitae PhotographY VidEo INTERACTIVE



My photographic practice is interdisciplinary and collaborative. It is characterized by an opening to other disciplines, in particular literature and multimedia, narrative and interactive processes. I have produced photographic exhibitions, net art projects, video installations, as well as a photographic and literary plurimedia fiction with the Montréal-based author Michel Lefebvre. Through an exploration of different narative forms, my work questions the construction o cultural identities, mythologies and territories. I had cofounded the artist-run centre TOPO, dedicated to the creation and presentation of digital art and literature works.
