“Nourished by in-depth research on the beginning of collective human history, the future of humankind, and largely influenced by myths, history and literature, I dedicated the last 6 years to the invention of an imaginary future place whose inhabitants consists only of feral children and where mother nature is claiming back her own territory. I continue to chart new corners of this world through mixed media sculptures, golden ceramic divinities and large-scale detailed black and white charcoal drawings.

 

Informed by novels such as Lord of the Flies by William Golding; the feral child figure is at the origin of my practice. The innocent, yet beguiling children, named the Lost Boys, are discovering the chaotic world that was left to them. Alone, melancholic and without any authority figures, these characters are silently waiting for a new order. Influenced by the basic human nature, their inner-state and gathering what was left from the past, they seek to forge a new civilization, creating social frameworks and new forms of belief..”
