Paradise Series  performance, scenography, printed archive — 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.

Wandering Jew — exhibition design — 2018
A Wandering  Jew is a very fast-growing hanging plant. In the form of a hanging installation, I offered cuttings of this plant to the visitors the group exhibition Entre interactions et interdépendances. With this small symbolic act, I aimed to avoid a dominant and industrial model that may cause injustice and danger for consumer, producer and nature.

Designed for the group exhibition Entre interactions et interdépendances at Théâtre St-Gervais in Geneva. Each project proposed a certain type of interdependence and were interconnected through ropes and pulleys, reminiscing the atmosphere of the theatre.

Under the direction of Ruedi Baur
In collaboration with the students of Space and Communcation

Making Fictions — scenography, video2017
Making Fictions, a workshop by Josheph Popper, introduces methods of prototyping and storytelling in a playful, hands-on way. It encourages and educates a process of thinking-through-making, offering a chance to experiment with methods and techniques for fiction filmmaking.

In group we built a detailed 1:1 scale film set out of simple materials, such as cardboard. Afterwards I used the fim set as the setting of my individual short film.
