Where is your inspiration coming from?
My very first inspiration come from the materiel itself. This process of creation is intuitive, instinctual, and essential for me. I am deeply caught up in this thread, its character, its resistance. Its giving me the infinitive possibility to go far and to use my imagination. It is a thread to a long-ago past. To my present live and to my story.
What are you trying to communicate in particular with your artwork?
I weave my past, through the now. I am telling a story. My story through the thread.
The thread permit me making new links, explore new horizons, look at things in front. Since the last year my life has been changed. After 30 years with the same man I am now by my won. My life is in movement, changing and being rebuilt step by step. My art work is strongly related to that. My thread sponge my feelings, fears, emotions and hopes. Challenge my thread is challenging myself, my life. With it I let go and release. With it I compose and discover new shapes new ways to say things.
I concentrate the present time with the thread, to be and create together. A life can spring from a single thread.
Which material you prefer to use and why?
Since 15 years I work and create with a fine silver thread. I can’t see my artiste identity without it. I feel deeply linked and connected to it. I buy it on spools, by weight. I use this thread to create jewelry, imposing structure and volume while it remains light and airy, lacy and flexible, there and not-there.
How much value do you give to researching material for your creations?
I do research and investigate others minerals, shapes and textures. The dialogue between other material. In the case of this fine silver thread I want to explore and continue lead and be leaded by it. I feel that more I work with it more I can “touch” and “be” in this fascinating junction gathering the past, the present and the un non-future. This material proposes a new dimension of space. By the holes, it captures air and emptiness. I can work then on big volumes and keeping the lightness end the fragile impression It gives.
Is it more important for you the process, or the final artwork itself?
The process is the precise moment who I AM. I start my thread creation without knowing precisely where I go and what and when will be the end of it. I need this “risqué” and doubts part to be fully in the process. I am on the border between awake and alive. The final part is when my jewelry find his owner its then become so right and strong. Its also the moment to let it go….
Is there an artist you prefer and why?
I am a third generation of artiste. My grandfather was one of the first photographer of Israel and my both parents are modern and engage artiste. I was rise with art all over. Very early I was employing words like: space, abstract, shapes…. Having strong smells of turpentine and oil colors which are always my favorite smells. I need art to live. One off the artiste which I love and was very much shaken by an exhibition I saw about Death is Jean Tinguely: Movement, imagination, tragedy and humor all together.
Have you ever thought to collaborate with other artists, or you like to work on your own?
The moment of pure creation I need my solitude. It’s a very intimate moment. I create some Art event gathering artistes in unusual spaces and in my Atelier. I need to meet others artiste from different universe and artistries disciplines. Its inspiring and gives other levels to my creations. Those mixers shuffled me, my art and take me out from my comfort areas Til now I needed to be on my own. Now, when things in my privet life are changing I need to share with others. Cooperating and working in the same space and common project and ideas. Time come for me to redefining myself and to be part of others.
Where do you feel you are at with this last collection?
I am just amazed that this fine thread permit me to progress technically and emotionally more and more and more…. It is in a faze to what I live. The thread is a receptor of air of light. It is like a mirror to what I am in this precise time and during all the processes.
What have you discovered of yourself, are you satisfied?
I discovered that continuing working with the same materiel for 15 years link me to my identity which become more clear and strong. Yes, I am satisfied by the fact that I can challenge the threads in so many ways. I it behaves as I want. Sometimes we are straggling but it is always fruitful and exiting. I never feel alone. It’s always a together process. The thread and I.
Two words to describe your last artwork collection.
LIFE / SIMPLICITY
Thread, movement and images. I immigrated to France. Everything was new for me. But I advance; I explore; I engage; and I weave my story, the memories and the gaps, into each of my creations. The thread helps me make new links, explore new horizons, look at things with a fresh eye. A life can spring from a single thread.
