About

I am a freelance writer and translator living in Paris.

I have been contributing to contemporary art magazines since 2006, for the most part ArtReview (London), as well as Art Papers (Atlanta), Digitalarti (Paris), Flash Art (Milan), Esse arts + opinions (Montreal) and Artpress (Paris). I am the author of monographs on Grégory Chatonsky, Amélie Bertrand, and Benjamin Sabatier (forthcoming). I am also the translator of exhibition catalogues on Tom Wesselmann, Pablo Picasso & Alexander Calder, Ha Chong-Hyun, Jean-Baptiste Bernadet, and Georges Tony Stoll.

After studying music, art history and cinema, 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. Paranoiac-critical moustaches guide my reason.
