ARTIST STATEMENT

My works are exploring the possibilities how to integrate my continuously constructed identity into society and documenting how I keep stretching my boundaries when presented with existential problems or emotionally difficult situations. With my intention to be transparent and embrace vulnerability, I would like to deepen the perception of the subject to a very personal and intimate level. The videos are illustrations of my writings, thoughts and my personal improvement. The works are quiet immaterial but in order to set up my video-performances I often create objects and build installations. Recently I started to create bricks from different materials that are signed by words reflecting both to their composition and human traits. My idea is to symbolise the elements of identities and the burdens of repetitive patterns. My practice is not only a self-healing process, but it also allows the audience to discover familiar patterns within their own life experiences concerning human relations and love affairs.
