STATEMENT

The need to investigate and question the importance and influence of the situation and the spatial environment, and its subsequent implications on the individual - and vice versa-, was instigated by my personal history of constant relocation and confrontation with unknown cultures, mentalities and environments, and the associated search for my place in them. In the past 10 years I have lived in 7 different countries on 4 continents, and meanwile travelled extensively. Being in transit has become a way of life for me, and it has prompted a mechanism of remote observation, raising questions about issues of uprooting and displacement from home, when the base for establishing an identity, or for claiming one´s roots (culture, language, people, space, etc.) becomes ephemeral, temporary and changeable, rather than being a constant from which to operate. 

 

I tend to work in a range of media, most commonly painting, photography, video and installation, and usually have a balanced studio/out of studio production/research. My modus operandi typically begins with the collection of material in and from the public space (visual, audible, notes, encounters), inhabiting the street, watching and capturing, material which is then to be edited and reinterpreted.
