About
Statement

In my photographic and experimental video practices I am quite often researching notions about identity, history and memory. Often times these themes are combined into installations mixing various media as sculpture, found objects, photography, sound...

My projects are generated from concerns found in the reciprocal relations of architecture and natural environments, visual culture and the perception of space. I am posing questions about space, place and urban structures, as well as their conditions within cultural and ideological systems of representations. Each of my projects often consists of multiple works, often in a range of different media, grouped around specific themes.
