Phishing

phishing hooks, fly for flies fishing, nylon thread, fishing weights, fishing floats

variable dimension

"Phishing reminds us of the game of seduction and sometimes of all its desperate attempts to bait, through the game of sparkling colors and lightness of forms. This work oscillates between fragility and strength, softness and aggressiveness,between the acid sweet and the hidden danger. Attractive compositions remind us of some kind of jewels which could be weaved carefully by a woman, while the choice of object remains typically masculine: fishing, weapon, hunting. Phishing floats between two waters where we are ourselves the preys, the fishes, attracted by colors, forms and matter. The traps are face-high in order the spectators to be even more charmed and hypnotized by the suspended constellation. It is in all these oppositions that Phishing finds its balance."
