Totem Series, 2008-2009

Series of paintings, objects and installations exploring one of my favorite post-human issue. The series is closely connected to Peau de Balle from 2008 and it is still developing as I like to come back to it from time to time. It also corresponds to my often used method: looking at objects and images that carry information or cultural codes in a purely aesthetic way, stripping them from their former meanings and recreating them into objects of worship, pure aesthetics, fetishes or future totems. (Shown in various galleries)
