Omschrijving werk

The feeling of the helplessness and therefore absurdity of human existence is something that has been my companion for a long time. Armed with eyes, damned with reason. Struggling with what is given, yet terrified of what is yet to be found. The man marches the world, knowing then unknowing again. Memory, archetype, myth and a ritual I see as the key categories of my work. In a continuous search artworks become inseparable from one another and together form a never-ending chronicle. Changing through time, carefully surrounding, embracing, they serve as bedtime stories for the frightened man. Working on the borderline between sculptural and theatrical I transfer my installations/sculptures/videos into acts of a bigger narrative. The materials I choose are somewhat earthy – clay, wood, wax, cotton, metal. They constantly change their state, just as the objects change their status. Just as there is nothing permanent in this world, just as we are unable to enter one river twice.
