Poush Manifesto, 153 avenue Jean Jaurès 93500 Aubervilliers
‘If I had to describe my practice, I would say that it is Collaborative – for me, art is a collective process. Conception and application is a team effort. It is a space where differences are affirmed while concurring. Installative – I place sculptures, people, images, and sounds in space and times. I create links between them to establish a durable and relatively autonomous commonality, then observe potential developments. Dramaturgical – these installations tell stories without saying them. The sculptures, bodies, movements, and sounds are the elements of a silent language that embodies forgotten stories and future myths.’
