PROJECTION AT RENCONTRES: MIRAGES
“Mirages groups together some recent videos. I’ve been exploring landscape issues ever since I started working with video. Through the moving image I am investigating environmental, urban planning and social concerns that I’m working on at the same time in photography. I mainly engage with altered landscapes, industrial sites and suburban areas. I show how our societies take over territories and adapt them to their own needs.”
