My work is driven by a story, a space or an experience that sparks my imagination. My art form is audio video installation by which I challenge myself to break through to notion of “screen”. In my installations the space, the video and objects are all an inherent part of the piece. It is like a dance between the real and the virtual, a place where they both interact with one another.
The content is an expression of a mixed bag of emotions and memories ranging from wonder, peace and joy to shame, frustration, anger, and confusion. Some are related to my childhood, others to dreams, stories and memories of myself and other people. There are themes of letting go of pretending, being pretty, fitting in, belonging stripping, becoming vulnerable. At the same time humor plays a big part in it as well.
In some of my work the audience becomes a witness in a rather private scene. Just like we can become a voyeur of our own mind. By manipulating and fragmenting time, space, sound and movement, the original emotion that initiated the story and the scene itself becomes ridiculous. In my art practice I reflect on (imaginary) experiences by playing with the real (the physical space or object) and projection (the virtual) to re-enact and dissolve this drama.
