The project “The center of spare-time activities” stages models playing the role of tourists in a chosen scenery : commercial areas in suburban zones.
It illustrates the current m utation of m alls, especially in France, through absurd and derision. These places aim at attracting more customers by providing spare-time activities. From the point of sale to a new way of life! This mutation has started worldwide and result in discovering new places such as theaters, wave pools, ski trails, museums, etc. This is the new generation of shopping areas !
Over time, I’m very interesting by staging. I love to building a picture in the same way I could build a painting. I’m inspired by Edward Hopper. I am impressed by the scenography of Jeff Wall and Gregory Crewdson. They also guide me.
