From the void and state of emergency, it’s the path that counts in my making.
my starting point comes from a long lineage of traditional photography.
in my practice, I stretch the boundaries of the classical print format and often
transform the original image into a 3d object.
I collect pieces of evidence, that have become part of a large scale body
of work, that I call "what we leave behind". these pieces of evidence integrate
into my projects. focusing around the architecture of things, like the inside of
a camera, inside of an igloo, inside of spaces, and how we fit in there, my fields
of research become tight, edgy, and super-specific.
after having examined those spaces - I do a re-mapping of them all.
involving acts of erasing/re-building, in a loop, I aim to create a fictional, new
narrative, a DNA code, made from zero evidences.
my way of looking, the process of making and approaching subjects,
is connected to my genetic code, which includes dualities.
I believe that in many ways, art acts as a surgeon's knife, or wants to do that,
or needs to do that, so I aim to be truthful and extremely dedicated to this role
"…Language is a skin: I rub my language against the other.
It is as if I had words instead of fingers or fingers at the tip of my words. My
language trembles with desire.. "( Roland Barthes.)
