"Transgression of Crochet, a Performative Experience of Space"
The coincidence allowed me to make beautiful discoveries. I was extremely fascinated by the particular beauty of electrical wires and plastic potential, so that they lightened my artistic career. I have chosen the wire as a first material of my work since 1999. I opted for an artisanal technique, that of crochet, in connection with contemporary tapestry. Such a method highlights the idea of connectivity and weaving of social links by only one continuous thread without any split, targeting a transgression of such a practice in the sake of a larger understanding of what it represents. Through the gestural repetition that allowed me to lead to a form of ritualization of my technique, I go through a phase of consciousness where perception becomes sharper. My practice has become a form of existense, of improvement and relief to arrive to a magical effect that releases the body through spirituality. It is also a form of connectivity, of exchange with artists that made my universe bigger. Through serial, monochrome (black) and an epistemological analysis, I suggest a mingling of certain discipines, a form of hybridization between a cosmological, mathematical and physical universe. My body becomes a leader thread that draws my interiority in the external space by performative and expressive videos. Here, I am experiencing a contiguity resulting in reality from the continuity of the thread This internal and fusional space, where I experience my body in relation to the continuous thread, often takes on an imaginary dimension, to which is added an external space, that of representation and distancing in the physical world of my work.
