About my work

My work examines power relations, authority, corruption, complicity, and gender inequality. I am inspired by the CAT and ES culture, history, and politics that surround me. My installation/drawings function as chapters of a story in which these topics are presented on the basis of pressed together, struggling bodies. In these scenarios of wriggling characters, which are set up as if on a theater set, the viewer enters a scene in which he or she promptly becomes one of the actors. Or as if you were walking through life-size picture books where you were allowed to make up the words yourself.

Subjects are concrete, the characters remain generic. None of the characters represent a portrait of a particular person. Through gestures and postures, the characters represent positions of power, hierarchies, and observations of the shadow side of human behavior. They represent emotions and relationships between people, the ways in which power structures impact interactions and lives. In doing so, the characters are not classified according to who is on which side of history. In my work, no one is inherently good or evil, but everyone is multilayered. The intertwining of bodies indicates that we are part of the same problem together. It is therefore difficult to distinguish between the characters who do evil and those who suffer in my work.
