Studied Film at Paris VIII St. Denis.
Lived in Lebanon, Cyprus, Greece, France and Sicily.
Currently working in Athens.



statement

"My work is an idiosyncratic experience of the notion of sedimentation, both in the physical and metaphysical sense. Mediterranean basin & sea, archives, documents, reconstructions, gestures, peripatetic & a sense of listening, take the viewer on a poetic meander, through creative comparison of reality, of languages and of narrations."
