Like many of the artist’s works, the series "Mes Transports" (2012-2013) takes up the double meaning of the word and image, referring to both the mode of transport and the experience of being transported by love.

In Mes transports (n°7), two figures on a trolley – one standing, the other lying – are surrounded by the metal frame of a female mannequin. The sentimental connotation is caricatured intensely here, reduced to a tragi-comic scene.
