Marie Tomb.
The bewil­dering, yet simple, works dis­play formal orga­ni­za­tion and rely on the effects of light on hol­lowed, carved, broken and pol­ished wood. Choukini punc­tures wood with window-like open­ings, giving the impres­sion that light pierces the work. Always imposing and sophis­ti­cated, his sculp­tures con­trast the soft curves of pol­ished wood with the dan­gerous cracks and crevasses within relief labyrinths.
