I have very early integrated the world of squat, the occupation of spaces, private and public to live and make art. I learned from the makers (Lallemant), the hakers, in spaces where we enter in resistance or in resonance with those (what) surround us. I have worked as a photographer and video maker in various fields of street art and the creation of artistic actions for the public in situations of exclusion or disability. The creation of "Live Cinema Yvonne", was born just after a family Europe tour in a van since 2017 to 2019, when i was living in Berlin.
I use analog photography in an original performative device of contemporary fairground theater which stages images of social resistance. As part of an immersive and poetic Live Cinema process, this device invites us to dive into the nebula of our deepest thoughts where the intimate and the public mingle, in a concern to paraphrase the good word of Godard, « to create politically and not to make political creation ».
This time of stop is so necessary in our societie of the speed and the unique format where any disparity must tend to the disappearance. I question our view of the world and propose a dialogue with an audience. My performances are in real time and are conceived with a small Live Cinema factory called "Yvonne le théâtre d'objets". I use analog tools and materials, including everyday objects, papers, photographs, optics and lenses, all mixed together in real time, to produce optical illusions and visual effects.
I open my suitcase, like Bachelard's box (Poetics of space, 1957) and let the images escape like so many accumulated memories: a slow dance from video surveillance cameras begins, staging these images of resistance and artivist struggles in the public space, so many visions that have nourished my life for a long time. That art allows here a recomposition of the world that goes in the direction of Latour et al (2015) « we must (re)compose a new common world ». If the gaze is multiple, if we operate a "diffraction", the world that takes shape is different: there is a joint displacement of the objects of the investigation, of what is looked at, and of the way of producing knowledge." (Gardey, 2007)."

2007 / 2011 I developed projects for short films, documentaries and artistic intervention in public space. I participated in many projects and creations with people in difficulty and excluded from access to culture.
2000 / 2007 Back in Nice, I created my photography workshop in 2000 at Les Diables Bleus and made my first videos. With other artists, we are undertaking the creation of Télé GlouGlou, a concept of offbeat and festive video broadcast which will be programmed at the street theater festival of Siacreries in Carros/2007. I also participated in the organization of several street performances like “L’art des Places”.
1993 I moved to Paris in 1993, exhibited portraits and produced photographic reports for fanzines. Performances.
