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.)
