His practice of artistic research dates back moments in time that influenced the aesthetics of the world as we perceive it today. By constructing a collection of facts, found objects, gifts and places he traveled, the artist re-works these elements through drawing, painting, bronze casting, charcoal strokes, video editing and arranging/re-arranging them in space in oder to put these moments or situations in evidence by throwing a new light on them.
