Walking into Roy Lichtenstein's New York studio in the spring of 1990 I entered the artist's visual world. Towering shelves of art books lining one side of the office led to a workspace where a tall "Brushstroke" chair stood.
Intérieur By rebuilding a fantasized inner space with two screens and video projections, Intérieur rests on a notion of duality, creating a device which turns the domestic universe into an extension of consciousness. Returning to the idea of refuge as much as to the idea of the cell, a character inhabits this imagined space, appearing sporadically on one screen and then on the other. Unable to look at both screens at once, the spectator is invited to mentally reconstruct the movements of a woman closing the windows of an apartment. Through this video work, the artist seeks to point out the paradoxes linked to psychic activity. In this way, the ajar and the closed, the singular and the double, repetition and oscillation, presence and absence are all concepts united to create a scene where the familiar universe is found altered.

New Kingdoms depicts a future Earth where humans have altered the course of evolution by introducing synthetically grown organisms into the environment. This aftermath of biotechnology takes place in a post human era where man-made life forms have adapted to the natural world. Genetically engineered beings have infiltrated the Earth’s surface developing new habitats and ecosystems within the landscape.
Car poolers is a project that continues my visual research on how the suburbs impact the landscape, the city and its inhabitants. These workers going to work in this way speaks of the lack of urban planning in many cities around the world.
