ARTIST STATEMENT 

As a visual artist I explore how human identity is being influenced by the social frameworks we live in. How much of our personality is determined by our roots and how easy can we adept to new circumstances? Does the country we live in, the generation we’re part of, or the language we speak change us?

My visual language is in a constant flux, since I feel that every subject demands a different way of telling. This opens up a huge variety of possibilities, meaning my work can result into both still and moving images, installations, performances, essays or simply a mix of it all. My passion lies in the constant experimenting with new materials and media. 

Groups are our natural habitat. I record, collect and create patterns which I find within these groups. I wonder… Is there a constant unchangeable core in every human, immune to all external powers? Or is our identity just a plaything to our surroundings?
