Paradise Series     
performance, scenography, graphic design
2019

Paradise Series is an installation with movable, easy to set up elements and specifically designed tools, activated during a performance. In becoming the director of a collective fantasy, I enable myself  to escape my mundane daily life.

The dream of a life better than the one we know is an essential part of human nature. Paradise is an omnipresent timeless figure expressing a yearning for that which is absent or desired. Today, in our modern western society, Paradise has become a commodity on the tourist market, a highly controlled construction that responds to the needs of Western tourists to transcend the limits of daily life. Escapism is produced and sold in an easy accessible form: a getaway to an exotic remote island. However, it is an artificial construction that ignores the local reality of these destinations and the imagined experience can never be reached, because it doesn't exist outside the imagination.

Hugo d'Alesi's Maréorama 
graphic design, research
2020

For the 1900 World’s Fair in Paris, the French graphic designer Hugo d’Alesi staged a voyage on a steamship that crossed the Mediterranean Sea from the French port of Villefranche to Constantinople, the capital of the Orient. By both recapturing the voyage as an active passenger aboard the Maréorama and deconstructing the Maréorama in relation to its historical and socio-economical context, this research aims to analyse Hugo d’Alesi’s immersive multi-sensorial spectacle, which combined commercial mass culture with the political agenda of the Third French Republic. It demonstrates how the voyage on the Maréorama was strongly embedded in the stereotypical Western constructed representations of the Mediterranean region at that time. These representations exposed the imbalance of power between the Western and Eastern poles of the Mediterranean basin and the authentic and sensual Orient as the supposed contrasting pole of the industrialised West.

The Monument
collage, scenography 
2019

Through a window into another world, you see a familiar shape yet something is different. The dislocation and disproportionate scale of what you see provoke an unsettling feeling and an awareness of insignificance in the face of this giant object: is it a relic of the past or rather a sign of the future? Is it worshipped as a deity or a monument of dictatorial repression?

A diorama designed for the exhibition Congress of Spoons at Salone Internazionnale del mobile de Milano 2019. This exhibition explored the narrative power of objects and our relationship with them whereby different cabinets proposed a different way of looking at the same object: the spoon.⁣ ⁣

Congress of Spoons
graphic design
2018

Proposal for the graphic identity and the exhibition design for Congress of Spoons.

The exhibition Congress of Spoons explored the narrative power of objects and our relationship with them whereby different cabinets proposed a different way of looking at the same object: the spoon. This proposal was based on a narrative in which the Spoon Community hired us to design their annual congress.The different cabinets represent different delegations that each have their own flag. The flag of the event is an assembly of all the delegations, representing the whole Spoon Community.
