Omschrijving werk

The common thread to my work is the exploration of a larger and more compassionate understanding of life. I have developed a performance-based practice in which I question the normative in history making as well as cultural and social norms. The context of other voices, beliefs, processes or stories, gives way to different interpretations. It allows us to see beyond the voices that dominate a worldwide discourse. I break down the pattern of expectations and habits from a personal viewpoint in investigative and often collaborative projects. Motivation for a project can originate in the friction surrounding a particular topic. By immersing myself completely in the situation, my own sensibility acts as a tool to experience various perspectives. The outcome is characterized by colorful work, lingering between performance and installation as potential performance environments. Working from that was is presented as fact, projects echo into something more fictional and magical. In a hopeful criticality to everyday life, I attempt to reconcile the contemporary with the nostalgic, the local with the global, progress with tradition and the explainable with the merely sensible.
