Moving from Switzerland to the U.S A. via France and China has tainted my perception of the world with a certain geographic compulsion. My work is a way to explore, process and challenge the semi-absurd lines that humans draw around themselves all over the world: borders, languages, media, class, politics, prejudice... I became an artist because it seemed like the only way to disentangle these lines, to research any and every subject, to travel any and everywhere, question anything I might take for granted, dig into any issue or discover any culture, and try to live every day with meaning and make every encounter count.
