As a practitioner, I am interested in the image within the meaning of visual culture. As a “picture” I understand every kind of notion taking mental and/or physical form. I am particularly interested in mediated images interpreted in terms of objet trouvé tradition.
As a theorist, I am concerned about the reception and production of images as social and cultural activities. Inspired by thought of Hans Belting, I study the triadic relation between an image, a man and his body. I am also interested in the role of text and psychoanalysis in image creation.
