“La grande maison (2018-2023) is a photographic exploration of memory fragments that haunt the artist’s nightmares. In this autobiographical project that looks at domestic violence, the house becomes a mental space that spans beyond the walls of the paternal home.The murderous phrases, once reserved for the privacy of the home, bring out unseen scars.”

La grande maison is the fifth book in the Baleine Blanche collection published by Macaronibook. This collection brings together six photographers who question, explore and reconstruct an image of the father.
