Artist Statement

I am a visual artist working across different media, but mainly unfolding from the medium of photography and video. I am interested in the archive, and I work with combining both physical, sensual and mental components to the archive. For example I use dried flowers, thread, hair, text, sound and smell. I explore existential questions through my praxis, and I often work with both psychological and philosophical approaches. The starting point for my artworks is my personal existence in the world, and it intertwines with the way I express myself - then, often leading me to explore more broader existential subjects.
