Following a residency at La Chambre Blanche in Quebec, Canada, I made the sculptural installation, Fireflies. This piece is based on the book by Georges Didi Huberman, Survivance des Lucioles (édition de Minuit, 2009)
It’s a tribute to Pasolini’s old dream of humanism. The fireflies are frozen in a single last movement as if suspended in formaldehyde.

Through Fireflies I want to give to the viewers another way to understand a sculptural form. I did a a three- dimensional shape in a 3D software and then re-materialize it . I attempt to reconnect with traditional sculpture by offering viewers an impressionistic experience look because the shape of the object is hidden from a visitor’s movements.
