CRITICAL REVIEW

The predilection for constructivism is strengthen by the predilection for metal, used predominantly in the brute shape of prefabricated elements. With such elements – like pipes, for example – new ensembles are made, ensembles with new finalities, far from their initial ones. Now the important feature is the affirmation of a frisky spirit doubled by the pleasure of technological improvisation. However intense his tendency towards friskiness is, it consumes itself at the level of the ensemble, because the details stand for the presence of certain rational nostalgias carried by the industrial elements he uses.
