Settings from fragments of stories.

I develop a field of research inside the Internet space, then apply an investigation protocol to extract different forms of narratives.

Real facts.

News Items become public facts, the truthfulness of which becomes uncontrollable;

Contemporary myths build themselves from there.

Fiction is everywhere, in texts and especially in images.

I transform Internet practices, like writing on forums or the use of surveillance webcams, to turn them into literature and cinema.

My process is looking for reversal, mix facts and fantasies. Everything is thought of as a fictional staging of a documentary film. The narrative becomes the setting of itself, thus, the film no longer needs to be realized as it is already contained in the objects created. Conversely, my video practice multiplies the alternatives and proposes a form of open fiction, unresolved.

Born in 1990, lives and works in Montréal and Paris.
