now lives in Berlin, examines phenomena from the natural sciences
from an artistic perspective, and also researches topics from fringe
science such as the relation between hypnosis and cinematography.

Art Museum under Hypnosis (2006) he studied hypnosis
techniques and applied them experimentally. His works have been
awarded numerous prizes, including the Ars Viva Prize for Art and Science
and the Recollets Grant in Paris. In 2011, working as an artistcurator,
he conceived L’Aether (de la Cosmologie à la Conscience) at
the Centre Georges Pompidou. His most recent exhibitions include
Anarcheology (2014) and Grey Magic (2015) at Esther Schipper as well
as Small Survey on Nothingness (2014) at the Schering Stiftung Berlin.
He currently teaches at the Haute école d’art et de désign in Geneva.
