About you work

Discipline: Visual Art / Performance Art

Technique: Photography, Video, Sound, Performnce


I work with different mediums to realize my ideas. Through the musician in me I have a huge interest in performance art. Generally, I make performance videos in which I am not necessarily acting. I would not define what I am doing as acting per se, but if I had to assign a specific categorization of my practice, I would say that I work with living things to create basic theatrical scenes with sound and visual elements. There is no technical precondition in my works. An image or a moment could give me an inspiration, and for me an artwork is like a combination of this incorporated with my own unique perceptions.

Plans for your residency?

I am fixated on the massive separation between modern human beings and their real nature. I question what a modern human being is, and what comprises our nature in modern life, and I am still searching to discover where I am standing. I would like to focus on your residency on modern human beings, their nature and the relationship with other beings. The subjects that interest me are; hierarchy, power, technology, happiness, nature etc.. I continue to discover and develop the themes I’ve been working with for a long time. For this residency I am interested in developing a video installation. I am open to collaboration with artists and I enjoy working with other local people.
