I translate, make, write and live in two languages and places: Manchester, England and Lyon, France. My hybrid creative work crosses disciplines, languages, mixes text and image. My process of making poetry is aking to my image-making; assembling material to an imagined code. The sculptural installations approach art-brut and are frequently described as 'visual-fictions', or the poetic of ordinary objects. Mine is the art of making things talk

 

 

All my works seems interconnected. They version and re-version themselves,re-explore how different materials express 

themselves and change according to context.The texts foreground what the material of language can do, band background what it can say.

 

I am always searching for a new acuter angle from which to observe things, approaching subjects as an archaeologist might; collecting, classifying, researching, imagining, finding, forgetting, making story

 

 

My work seems to re-present and/or re-imagine the familiar and the banal. it higlights and decontextualises, subjects its materials to abstraction and nenew perspective.
