Dans le champ de ma pratique, la lumière constitue le coeur de mon travail. La lumière en tant que médium et substance, mais aussi la lumière en tant qu’intelligence révélatrice. Tel un témoignage des différentes manifestations du réel, la lumière peut nous apparaître sous une multitude de formes et de réflexion. Elle pose alors la question du visible et de l’invisible. Comment rendre visible l’invisible ? Comment toucher la source immatérielle en passant par la matière ? Mathias Bensimon
