Her artistic practice works across disciplines, primarily with sculpture, installation, photography, video and performance.
My practice explores questions of cyclical time, ecofeminism and storytelling. By using found objects, cultural symbols and mythical references as mediators, I try to challenge conventional ideas - the way we tell stories and how we collectively frame our lives. My work evolves as a sensuous cross between situated knowledge and intuitive processes. Rooted in feminism and ecological ontology my work is continuously interweaving cyclical narratives of ethnographic dimensions.
Seeking conversations dealing with the reformulation of our collective position in relation to our surroundings, I strike an emphasis on the narrative of entanglement - to live in coexistence as a part of a larger ecology, a condition. Through material studies and traditional craftsmanship, stories about identity, becoming, protection and care are evoked. My work with materials is closely linked to an understanding of time and the inevitable impact of entropy on our own existence through the material reality.
In an attempt to regenerate a caring narrative about the cyclical connectedness of everything, my work often manifests itself as compositional installations or states of phenomena.
