hereby I state
I am artist, curator, editor and art manager.
I am searching, experimenting, improvising. Trying to have fun but at the same time to be passionate and serious about what I do, and respectful and curious about the work and interests of others.
As artist, I make my work accessible to the audience. Speaking to you, in some way, whether tangible or suggestive. The work asks simple questions: Will you touch me? Do you feel me, do I seep inside you?
I develop my ideas, combine them with words, thoughts, poems and finally deliver them in their frank and intimate form: skinned bare, left to be touched, entered and played with.
I work with the human body, senses and perception. Most of my art originates in the body, its forms and relation to space within and outside of itself. The pressure of the outside and inside world; the stress; the compression: what happens to the flesh when disturbed, squeezed, uncomfortable?
Writing and spoken word always lure around, waiting to be explored.
I work in sculpture, drawing, writing, performance and mixed media.
As curator, I am interested in the overlapping of artistic and curatorial roles, their collaboration and communication. I focus on socially engaged arts, rural contexts and means of developing support networks for young emerging artists and art professionals.
Furthermore, I have been exploring the work of cultural organisations focused on international collaboration, transitioning the borders between culture and other spheres of daily life: education, politics and economics..
