I’m a curious person.
I look at the world with art as my point of view.
For me the world is a community of people: their situations, their environment, their movements in space and time.
From a personal point of view I look at how these things relate and, most importantly, communicate. I research.
It is a process-oriented practice that involves social engagement and reflection on current, historical and future social, political and cultural states of affairs.
The research becomes a source of inspiration from which ideas are born and projects are initiated.
My projects are long-term with many different artistic outcomes along the way.
The artistic outcomes can be objects, performances, video installation, film and whatever serves to communicate the idea and make space for a transformative experience for the audience and myself.
Interdisciplinarity is key and collaboration the major driving force.
I enjoy collaborating with other artists and professionals from different fields, from both inside and outside of academia and the professional creative sphere; and from the worlds of art and film.
I enjoy engaging with people of all professions and non-professions, incorporating diverse positions and embodied knowledge bases.
It is about how things are and how they happen.
My strength is my unique perspective. My unique perspective is my strength.
I share this perspective with others by sharing my position as art works. At its best this leads me to uncover the invisible or the ignored.
