The birth of Victoria and Helena changed everything. Nothing is the same anymore. They are part of my world, my life, myself. We evolve side-by-side united by a unique bond. Through their gaze I rediscover the moments linked to early childhood. Joy of life, exploration of the environment, discovery of oneself and the others are depicted through diptychs, creating an imaginary and yet authentic encounter uniting the human and animal universe. Instincts are the basis for survival, and the relationship we build with others, the environment and the planet define our humanity. I started « Instincts. Same but different » as the silent observer of my daughters’ explorations, encounters, and nascent dyad. Instead, it has been the process to redefine myself as a woman, a mother and an artist.
