I started Tigre en Papier to set a small business, but it gradually became more of an artistic project in the period when hand-made products spread. Soon, I learned that I did not have the nature for that kind of job as I am rather liable to experiment and changes. The name of the project was picked haphazardly and means “seemingly dangerous”; the origin of the expression is supposedly Chinese, but I preferred the stylish vibration of its French translation. From fashion to installation, Tigre en Papier traverses a multitude of mediums, through which it expresses ideas such as ephemerality, identity, or deception. In many of my pictures, I arrange juxtapositions, reinterpretations of pretty well-known subjects, and various intersections.
