ESADHaR, Rouen, 2021
October 18 - December 15 2021
An invitation by the art school in Rouen to exhibit in their house-shaped exhibition module in the entrance hall revived my interest in the failed utopia of collective social housing. On the inner walls, proliferations of colored squares evoke the scrambling of the modernist grid practiced by contemporary architects. On an outer wall, photocopies using text, simulations of interiors made with the Ikea design tool and flower collages form a tale of the difference between planed and lived reality.

AUGUST 2 – SEPTEMBER 27 2020
My contribution to this group exhibition in the pyramid-shaped barns of the Pays Fort region was inspired by the local tradition of witchcraft. I adopted its assumption that answers to problems can be found in a parallel realm and certain rituals give access to it. Groups of construction signage inscribed with pictographic representations of rural life and QR codes were spread among the three sites. They marked the entry points to underground content: the card game Oracle and four electronic flip books (Rural Flip 1 – 4).

OÙ EST LA DIFFÉRENCE ? 2020
This group exhibition takes gender as its theme, pairing male and female artists with thematic or formal similarities. My ORACLE electronic card game and wall paintings depicting the mutation of the Covid-19 virus dialogue with Olivier Garraud's disident pseudo press cartoons. Our shared interest in mapping current affairs, the ironic use of text and a taste for high impact graphics motivated this "arranged mariage."

The exhibition Off the Map at the Post Office Gallery is a continuation of my interest in taking supposedly unappealing urban zones as the subjects of tourism campaigns. Based on a decade of traveling to ex-Soviet outposts, post-industrial regions and unloved neighborhoods full of social housing, this is a call to reconsider where you’d like to spend your holidays. My visitors’ center for neglected destinations brings together wall paintings, photographs and travel anecdotes.

Group show "The Expatriates"
16 April - 22 May 2016
Curator: Julie Collins
Production Site, 2015
From March to May 2015, this ever-changing exhibition turned Le 116 into a creative sweatshop. Mornings were devoted to study of the urban fabric, afternoons to making work in dialogue with the art center’s visitors. Wall paintings inspired by the surrounding residential and industrial architecture were filled in as the weeks went by. Paintings of facades, signposts and aluminum laser cutouts under glass bubbles were added progressively, creating an indoor environment devoted to celebrating the world just outside its doors.

MAISON LOUIS CARRÉ
Six artists, French, Icelandic, Swedish and Australian have each developed unique work. Yet they all share a strong interest in architectural questions. Each has its own form, either drawing, painting or sculpture. They are concerned with integrating the space, whether indoor or outdoor, domestic or natural, while paying particular attention to the materials used. They gathered in the Maison Louis Carré, which is both intimate and strongly influenced by nature, for a debate and to ‘go green’.
May 24 - September 6 2015.
