Omschrijving werk

The common thread to my work is the exploration of a larger and more compassionate understanding of life, motivated by a strong sense of justice. 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 narratives within my deeply personal works, gives way to alternative interpretations of reality. The reality beyond a pattern of expectations, biases and stigmas made evident through investigative and often collaborative projects. Motivation for a project originates in the friction surrounding a particular issue or topic, picked up for instance from hearsay on the streets or from sensible tensions online/offline. By immersive and participative research, my own sensibility acts as a tool to experience various perspectives and to gain a wholesome point-of-view. Research results never lead to a univocal presentation, but rather to projects lingering between installations, performances, discussions, gatherings, workshops, drawings, text and video works. 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.
