THERE IS NO OPPOSITION BETWEEN KNOWLEDGE AND WILDNESS, BETWEEN DISORDER AND CULTURE, AND BETWEEN ART AND LIFE: THOSE WHO WOULD LIKE TO MAKE US BELIEVE THAT ART IS A SPHERE SEPARATED FROM THE WORLD, ARE TRYING TO KEEP A SYSTEM ISOLATED. DISSOLVING THE BOUNDARIES AND WORKING AGAINST ALL CATEGORIZATION, I BUILD MY WORK ON THE PRINCIPLE OF COHABITATION.
