Whether physical, virtual, literary, geographical, textual or imaginary spaces, she attempts to bring together things, objects, people and concepts, to mix natures in order to discover the surplus and carry on a reflection on the world that surrounds us. Thinking practice by deliberately refusing reductionist categorization. She is developing this curatorial practice in the wide sense as an artistic practice. Creating off-stage spaces, whatever the platform, by the integration of multiple academic disciplines, dispositives and processes. She is co-founder of the publishing house Clinamen (2013). She runs the independent art space Zabriskie Point with Yoan Mudry and Laure Marville since 2012. She also curated several independent propositions among others HTWW (Geneva 2017).
