These sculptures evoke an enigmatic universe, both in their form and meaning. Characterised by their small dimensions, the works force the beholder to look closely and enter into dialogue. Their ambiguous presence, which develops no narrative, amuse and disquiet at the same time. His sculptures use fragments of the collective memory. Surrealism, symbolism, pop, nature and art history cross each other and they form naturalistic and worrying impressions.

On show at Mudam until October 27.
