I currently live and work in Paris, however I still have a strong connection with Basque Country where I’m from. I studied Fine Art at Cergy Art School, Paris. Since graduating, and on the side of my art practice, I’ve always worked on set-design for film shoots. Art informs the design of a set and vice versa. Art and cinema are in a constant relationship.
I’m influenced by many artists such as Raymond Hains, Bela Tarr, Le Corbusier, Robert Smithson, Chantal Akerman, Laure Prouvost, Virginie Despentes, Don Delillo, W. G. Sebald, Enrique Vila-Matas, and many more.
It is often triggered by a place I visit. It can be a disused motor track in Catalunya, the ruin of a housing estate that was never finished to be constructed in the north of Madrid, an old and empty scientific observatory on the French Riviera, the history of a wasteland in Paris suburbs, the sound space of a film.
Right now I’m working on a sculpture commissioned by the Nouveaux Commanditaires (New Patrons) and Foundation of France. In 2018, it will be installed permanently in a borough of Bordeaux, France.
