The artist writes:

My work is about memory and forgetting. What makes a self? I have come to think of the self as a territory made of well-curated memories and erasures. The Léthé series places us where being itself is a forgotten monument; where even the most persistent conception of identity dissolves in front of us. We have to forget what we were in order to become anew … Naître et n’être rien.
