The direct cutting on limestone guides my creative process. Hard limestones (Burgundy limestones, marbles...) and soft limestones are my favourite materials. Each time I look for archaic organic forms, which unfold. Vegetable, animal. To bring about the advent of unclassified primitive living beings. CALCANIMALIS is the search for a new organicity. A kind of stone dream, which would like to "reconcile" the limestone with its memory dimension. To give life to these plant beings - imaginary animals, which evolve below the human, at the edge of the human. To also find a certain rhythm: slowness - movement - deployment. The cutting technique is mixed, although mainly manual: tips, knives, vibrating hammer, rotating tools. For some parts: possibility of a full-size plaster duplicate, obtained by silicone molding.

3 years training in direct stone-cutting: Atelier de Paris Glacière ABA Mairie de Paris (Paris 13).
