Ever since my first studies in Art, my work has been crossing the borders between disciplines. It has been my focus to bring together drawings, sculptures, photographs, installations and ready-mades. A clear line in fascination determines the handwriting of this ambitious attitude.
My earlier works have shown a search for identity. Works evolving around gender issues, nationalism and status have questioned the autonomy of the individual.
Later on the formats presented by our product-based and commercial-minded society entered and merged into my concept.
More and more, not the "self" but the created environment (as a result from human actions) becomes the centre of my interest. My research now focuses on what can be read in a surface or a material. In studying the appearance, we can discover information that goes beyond the visual.
