ARTIST’S STATEMENT

“Dealing with light is dealing with energy…”

In my opinion, the positive result and impact of the INTERFERENCE festival owed their success to powerful resonance, triggered by impulses of passion and optimism. This resonance managed to move many people and awaken their appreciation for an art form, which was previously unknown to them…a stone being thrown in to the water, the stone symbolising an impulse and the ripples the expanding resonance… I looking forward to SEE Djerba, on our shared creative thirst, to our thirst for creative community … the driving force…”
