Artist Statement: The "Le Masque de Venus" ring is a unique creation that blends inspiration from a Senegalese necklace. At the heart of the design stands the reimagined face of a woman, a sculpture that celebrates the fertility and strength of African tribal women. Every detail of the ring is a result of meticulous craftsmanship. The two small rings accompanying each movement of the ring produce a melodic sound, paying homage to the vibrancy and music of African tribes.

Artist Bio: My artistic sensibility is attracted to what is invisible in technology: motherboards, circuits, connectors, slots and sockets. They define in detail the whole of today's society. They become its icons. From a conceptual point of view, my poetics is based on the memory function contained in the circuits.

In my works are present various hardware components, but the motherboard plays a main role: with my creations I pay homage to this hi-tech object by representing it in the graphic designs I apply on metal surfaces. The geometric shapes that support the graphic apparatus, in their simplicity recall the constituent elements of the hardware.
The aim of my art is to build a union between the material past and the virtual future, in order to create a bridge of interconnections.
