1.Tell us what you do and your beginnings.

I am a french artist. I create photographies, short films, installations. My work is about capturing images from reality and distorting them. I was drawing when I was a kid then I played with pinhole photography and now I am mainly using digital tools to do my art.

2.What are your favorite museums in the world? Why?

I haven’t seen so many museums so I am afraid that my favorite ones are still my unknown ones. That being said, I really like the “Jeu de Paume” museum in Paris. It features great art exhibits and it’s a small and not crowded historical building.

The Centre Pompidou in Paris is also one of my favorite. I love the fact that each level is one flat surface wihtout any permanent wall; it can be completely reconfigured! I also like the Museum of Modern Art in São Paulo designed by the architectect Lina Bo Bardi. The building is amazing.
