Newly arrived in New York I want to get in contact with art galleries and cultural institutions to show my art production.
I want to meet with publishers for book projects, which are already prepared.
I will also be looking for illustration and graphic design work with magazines and communication agencies.
In parallel to my previous carrier as graphic designer, I produced an artistic research based on different media and following a specific creative process.
During two years I accumulated a large amount of drawings without giving myself a predefined heading. I wanted to see emerge automatically from my subconscious territories that after I will explorate. Then came the moment of selection and thinking from where I elaborated a working plan.
My intention is to show that creative freedom only exists in conjunction with a set of intellectual principles. It would have been a mistake to determine them in advance and a bigger one still to ignore what was going on inside the process.
I then established an arborescence from a selection of key words in order to make the artistic project visible. This also revealed its endlessness and therefore its incompletion.
I wish the viewer gets this map not only to guide him but also to help him capture what an artist can project onto himself. The set of key words is very subjective but the general intention shall be to objectively share these.
In the show, the drawings will have the first place but I will also introduce other media such as photography, video and sculpture. I will publish at the same time a series of books that already exist on-line.
