Shaped in a distabilized society, my world doesn’t function within a pre-given or self-understood backdrop, but propells questions on a miriad of relations. My practice comprehends the world of urban-life
daily reality as well as the official art system along with the practices of the independent culture.
I am interested in working with space and the ways it interacts with and enables creative, social and political frequencies of everyday life; I use space as means of expression and intervention, often operating with non-gallery environments.
At a cross-section of different mediums my work is rooted in the experience of immediate surroundings. Key agencies incorporate photography, text, sound, voice and light and their sculptural qualities resourcing a situation in space.
I often work with and for a limited number of audiences, experimenting with ways an experience can be shared. Denying the self-sufficiency of an artistic act I also wish to confront the visitors with situations for which I refuse to take complete control of, often in a form of participatory projects.
