In her artworks, the subject lays down the materials. The questions she is raising are leading me to use a large range of materials, from photography to drawing, video to sculpture, or installations. Her main concerns are the addictions, the ritual of everyday life, linked to the notion of imprisonment. 

     The basis of her researches became apparent in her fist installation, La Maison malade (1999), which take the shape of a closed space, saturated with medicine wrappings. This unreal pharmacy is left to chaos, brimming with wrappings, accumulated and piled up from the floor to the ceiling. The undecided viewer has to make his way in the installation by tramping those wrappings. A closed and claustrophobia room is the reflection of the Occidental society, due to overproduction, satisfied till suffocates with drugs and other descriptions for treatment. Against the diseases whose we don’t really know if they are the result of a real unrest, created by a hypochondriac delirium, or came from the over-consumption of chemical substance.

     Her work makes itself conspicuous by the explorations of the notions of insanity or loneliness. Their omniscience in her work proceeds to her personal and familial history. But this phenomenon is dependent on a collective and social history. Have you ever heard of “social group” (“corps social”)?

     The medicine turns out to be the mirror of the societies’ trouble. Each of us can establish a dialogue, enriched by his own experiences of illness and/or death. Thanks to macrophotography (the “microscope” of the chemist/researcher), she sounds a part of the world, our addictions or secret thoughts. She observes how the world alienates us a bit more every day, and creates new desires, unceasingly activated, from Internet (Boîte de déception, 2005) to the Fat free (2005) dictate and other beauty canons widely followed.   

     This daily alienation is traduced in few of her artworks, such as What is it that makes today’s people so different, so attractive? (2003) or Lorenza (2009), in whose cosmetics obsession becomes funny by showing the absurdity. She is working on the absurdity, the derision or the sarcasm in her drawings, which is an intimate support. She is trying to point out few characteristics of the occidental society, saturated by information, suffering from its over-production, satisfied and about to suffocate – on the contrary, in some places there is a big gap concerning the access to medical cares (Serie Sales Woman).

     The plastic language she is developing points out a link between mass consumption and pharmaceutical industries – the labs use the same marketing strategies than the ones used for any other product. It leads to a seductive run which ended to the wide standardization – dangerous – of the absorption of drugs, which became a desire such as the other kind of addictive and comforting products. But she refuses the demonstration to prefer the assessment and “formal game”, until abstraction. Her works reveal a disturbing intimacy, poetry as fragile as radical, but neither the images nor the viewer can distinguish the fascination aspect from the loathing, in front of this modern time drug. The common and without any doubt definitive presence of medicine in our pharmacy, hospitals and homes, shelves and handbag (Ouvrez votre sac, 1999), is usually considered as appeasing.

     Another aspect of the medicine is the counterfeiting and the illicit traffic – one of the most profit-earning. She retook the name of the famous American association for food and social protection (FDA), and she realized a group illustrating the medicine traffic, from the cautious and lucrative deal in the street (Speedy deal, 2008) to the worldwide import-export phenomenon. Between the “magic powder” in the form of a regenerative pill – in reality composed by sugar and flour, when it is not crushed glass! – and the real drug diversion in the factory and repacked to be dealt in Africa or elsewhere (Serie Sales Woman, 2008; Pharmacie gazon, 2008). False, true-false, false-true, have already made a lot of damages in developing countries and are spreading to the rest of the world. We can compare the scope of this phenomenon to the massive but dramatic destruction it led to (Mass Destruction, 2008).

     The patient suffering from addictions is looking for the recreation of those, under the shape of a house. Thus, The Pink House, shed on casters which, despite it seducing and reassuring aspects, hides few specificities that the visitors can discover while experimenting. Usually one of the major stakes of a doll house is to incite the child to create his own universe, in whose he is the only master, her artwork Peeping Tom’s house illustrate a soft voyeurism. It is mainly an open space, the house deals with a disturbing ambiguity, placing the visitor in the role of a curious intruder. Inside he discovers, through a dozen of videos, an intimate microcosm made with usual daily hygienic habits, funny or weird, absurd or disturbing, creating a discomfort for the public.  This is the alienating nature of the contemporary hygienic trends that is aimed here: their tendencies to ubiquity, their multiplications and repetitions and spreading show the neurotic desires, conscious or not, of almighty control of the body. The Box House (2006) is an oversized box, which appears as an answer to all our pathologies, while the lighting cage entitled Light house symbolize the intimate space, where we keep ourselves in prison. It also symbolizes the constant disappointment caused by addictions, and is the materialization of our imprisonment: by separating ourselves from others, it sends us back to our eternal loneliness. 

     From the body to the house, her works are raising questions about our environment, about what is around us – those “skins” that should protect us, but which finally reveal us.
