"The goal of my performance is to demystify childhood memories. I attempt to break down the prettiness of the memories through the use of irony and humour.
To what extent do we re-create our past when memory, oral tradition, and a few photographs are our only remaining markers? The memories which remain are part truth, part fiction.
"My album is a collection of photos, memories, and autographs. But it could also be a record, stamps, or a book.
"My performances are long-term projects. Thus the performance itself is the tip of the iceberg, the visual summary of a work which comprises several spheres of human activity. Above all, it is a process through which we learn about ourselves and others." -Denis Lessard

Mon but est de désacraliser, de démystifier les souvenirs d'enfance dans le cadre d'une performance. Je cherche à briser la joliesse des souvenirs par le biais de l'ironie et de l'humour.
L'album, c'est une collection de photographies, de souvenirs, d'autographes; cela peut aussi être un disque, un album de timbres, un livre.
