In his works, the artist questions the systems of time measurement and places subjective action at the centre of long-lasting work processes, which are mainly translated into stone, paper and light media. He models on the term of “temporality” by engraving fleeting characters in an almost anachronistic medium such as granite, for example, or constantly testing models of “time” with techniques of self-recapitulation.
