Statement

I am a curator  and writer based in Melbourne. Originally from France, I have a background in Art History, Anthropolgy and Curatorship. I undertook research in the fileds of photography, video art and museology. I have curated exhibtions at indepedent organisations in Melbourne and Stockholm as well as projects in the public space (City of greater Dandenong, State of Design Festival, Melbourne). My curatorial practice is informed by the image of a microscope: a device that is able to switch lenses to adjust to -and analyse- the diversity of art practices today. 

Committee member at King’s ARI, one of Melbourne's established Artist Run Initiative, I curated the 2012 Flash Night Program: a series of one-off events in between exhibitions that accommodated experimental, temporary or site-specific projects such as performances, video screenings, new collaborations and art magazine launch. I contribute to the direction of the gallery and its program, currently preparing a publication and exhibition to celebrate to 10 years of the gallery.

Passionate and critical about contemporary art, I enjoy writing exhibition catalogues for artsits and organisations in Australia (Bundoora Art Centre, Ballarat Photo Biennale, The Substation) and contributing to art magazines such as Un. Magazine and The Maximilan.
