Statement

Reality can be stranger than fiction. I collect sites that show this by escaping from urban planning and by transforming to spontaneous spaces where anything could happen. These sites may be silent, abandoned, dark and surreal, but instead of film sets they are real. Objects and traces point to unknown narratives. Researching the site, I investigate these objects, traces and narratives by in situ explorations and observations, documenting, filming, interviewing, story-collecting, archival research, literature study and public experiments.

As people are absent, only the traces and objects in the space know the recent history. They point not only to the site specific events, but are also related to bigger economical and political changes outside the space. Therefore, I consider these silent objects as characters of a language. By drawing and the use of black ink I reduce the space to its essentials as an attempt to read and write this abstract language.
