Artist statement

Using sculptures, transported materials, found objects, organic matter, lighting and soundscapes, performative acts and their activation in space; I attempt to create an environment of ambiguity and familiar paradox, and invite the viewers to seek out the intimate values that form the meaning of their presence within it. Through artistic practises such as walking, I research how social, cultural and political phenomena and the material world affects the way of being. The visual outcomes of a gradual decay, destruction or corruption and the combination of organic and non-organic matter, became the main element of my narration. With my current work I intend to depict aspects of our cotemporary word as archaeological findings or as memorabilia in an abandoned, safe space which is exempt from the problems that defined them.
