My aesthetic inspirations change over the years. And there are those that remain. I could name a lot of artists, filmmakers, directors, writers, friends, parents and figures. I believe that the things that interest me are always linked to a form of subtlety, of silence and modest counterpower. As well as the economy of means, restraint and humour. For my project at the Villa, I was inspired by a filmmaker I’ve been fascinated by for a very long time, Sergei Pardjanov, and his movies from the 60s, including one called Sayat Nova.
