Artist Statement

I am a visual artist working across different media, but mainly unfolding from the medium of photography. I am interested in the Family Archive and I work with combining both physical and mental components to the archive. For example I use dried flowers, thread, hair, text and sound. I explore many existential questions through my praxis, and I work with both psychological and philosophical approaches to different subjects. The starting point for my praxis is my personal existence in the world, and it intertwines with the way I express myself. It often leads me to exploring more broader existential states that seem to be present in many of us.
