I wear a protective helmet, armor and a shield mades  by used optical glasses. The optical glasses are collected  from people who are connected with art – gallerists, journalistes, artistes, curators,  assistantes of artistes, art critics, etc). This sculptures distort, destabilize my vision and cause both physical and mental discomfort.  Questioning the way we are used to see but also how we see ourselves. Through the eyes of others, accepting the risk of an initial imbalance that this will entail, the project aims to shake up the vision through inertia, to force us to look for others’ point of views, other perspectives to see.
