Prosthetic ultra-realistic human hands made of silicone are housed in a shell, the series « Amour sans organes » (Love without organs) stimulates our imagination in the manner surrealist objects did in the early twentieth century. "Chatty object" as he likes to call them, are shellfish-like chimeras for humans that evoke the question of ghosts, of the domestication of the nature, of sexuality and the desires to touch, right up to the violation of intimacy. By its title, these sculptures also refer to Antonin Artaud's "Body without organs": This ideal of ecstatic freedom in which the atomic body could be released from its own body-tomb in order to become a communicating vase.
