Porject statement

"My engraving practice aims to recuperate and “reformat” existing serial images, looking at issues of processes of control and surveillance.   I decided to track down these “authoritarian” abstractions with the goal of reproducing and multplying them the way a forger would. Radio surveillance labels, schemas issued from police procedures, identity documents and transport tickets: these are some of the elements that I appropriated. The methods I use are quite minimal (printed without a press, using a spoon) so that prints can be made anywhere with this alternative and autonomous process."
