Artist statements

I am a visual artist who works with video, sound, photography, ceramics and painting. In my work, I investigate the ways that my body interacts with ‘the Other’. For me, ‘the Other’ does not only include people, but all living things, and even myself. I often notice that people do not understand each other, let alone know what birds are thinking, or how our own bodies function – we cannot control our own organs, for example. In my practice I am interested in imagining communication with these close yet so far incomprehensible beings and things.

The production of my work comes from life – my body, cooking, dead insects on my balcony, the people I live with, conversations with friends – everything can be a source for producing a work.
