I am a writer, translator and editor from Paris, working in both English and French for artists, authors, galleries, and art centers. I am the current treasurer of AICA-France (International Association of Art Critics), and on strike there until further notice to defend freedom of speech and women’s rights. I am also a member of the Ligue des auteurs professionnels, which I have joined in order to defend the profession. I am further working as a webmaster and translator for AICA International.
I am the author of monographs and exhibition catalogues on Grégory Chatonsky, Amélie Bertrand, Pierre Ardouvin, and Jan Fabre. I am also the translator of books on Tom Wesselmann, Pablo Picasso & Alexander Calder, Ha Chong-Hyun, and Georges Tony Stoll, among many others.
I have contributed to contemporary art magazines for 13 years, starting in the mid-2000s: namely, ArtReview (London), Aperture (New York), Frieze (London), Esse arts + opinions (Montreal), Mouvement (Paris), Art Papers (Atlanta), Digitalarti (Paris), Flash Art (Milan), and Artpress (Paris).
After studying piano with Valery Sigalevitch, art history and film, I originally did research on pioneer video art, exhibited cinema and digital art at Brown University (Providence), Emory University (Atlanta) and Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, where I taught modern and contemporary art in the early 2010s. Some of my research on the work of Bill Viola was published at the time.
I also realized a few experimental videos, which were screened in Europe and in the United States, and codirected Passage 2009, a festival in the form of a video exquisite corpse bringing together original works by French, Canadian and American artists.
I am overall inspired by in situ practices, found art, conceptual wit, haunted minimalism, and nonsense, further indulging in photography and geekery.
