Graduated from the University of Liege with a PhD in History, History of Art and Archaeology (July 2021), I have defended a thesis about the self-depictions of artists in Ancient Egypt, from the Old Kingdom to the Late Period.
My current research project is entitled "Prestige and Illusion. The Appropriation of the Visual Culture of the Elite by the Ancient Egyptian Sub-Elite at Thebes in the 18th-19th Dynasties (ca. 1550-1186 B.C.E.)". It aims to improve Egyptology’s perception of the intermediate social classes which did not belong to the stricto sensu elite but intended to display a closed connection with them by using their visual codes on small commemorative media. The voices of the lower classes are sometimes forgotten, but this new research project aims to bring their stories back to life.
