I am a freelance writer, translator and photographer living in Paris.
I have been contributing to contemporary art magazines since 2006, namely ArtReview (London), Frieze (London), Aperture (New York), Art Papers (Atlanta), Digitalarti (Paris), Flash Art (Milan), Esse arts + opinions (Montreal) and Artpress (Paris). I am the author of monographs and exhibition catalogues on Grégory Chatonsky, Amélie Bertrand, Benjamin Sabatier (forthcoming), and Pierre Ardouvin (forthcoming). I am also the translator of books on Tom Wesselmann, Pablo Picasso & Alexander Calder, and Georges Tony Stoll, among others.
After studying piano, 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. Some of my research on the work of Bill Viola was published in 2011. I also realised a few experimental videos and codirected Passage 2009, a festival in the form of a video exquisite corpse bringing together original works by French and American artists.
I am overall inspired by in situ practices, found art, conceptual wit, haunted minimalism and, above all, nonsense.
