Statement

 

My artistic practice is concerned with the problematics of representation of memory and history.

I develop work across various media, in order to investigate the role, status and competence of the artistic object in conveying the past from a contemporary point of view.

 

Additionally, I am interested in examining the way memory binds itself to sites, by positioning the pieces in relation with the space where its is contained and the viewer. By testing the boundaries of a medium, I attempt to draw a parallel between the representation of a fragment, which presupposes the loss of something ungraspable, and the selective processes of memory itself, while reflecting on the helplessness of the idea of accurate, total representation.
