I am a multidisciplinary artist mainly working with performance video and installation art using my own body image. Developing in the Ceramics & Glass Department and learning techniques from the craft world enriches my interests in exploring the connection between body and material, video and space, projection and 3D objects, the written word and moving image and the ability to combine digital and analogic 3D medias. I use these to reflect upon the relationship between myself and the world and research the relationships between the artist and the viewer, the object being viewed and the subject creating the content, between intimacy and „the other“, and between familiarity and foreignness.
I see my work as a frame to an image of life, as I believe that life, by itself, is a form of art. Body is art. Everything is art. Body language and image is used, in my work, as a window to view content. You can see only what is reflecting back at you from the glass, or you can, alongside your own image and perception, see through and gaze inside a different mind.
In combining ideas from the worlds of eastern philosophies such as Yoga, Meditation and Zen Buddhism among western and modern philosophy I create a hybrid between language, everyday life, the human body and theory.
