Statement

I film and perform to create the worlds where reaching the extremes of a feeling is the main goal. Whether this is done for ultimate aesthetic satisfaction or experiencing intense feelings like fear, grief and guilt, the rules of reality exist in those worlds only to be subverted and played with. I believe our vision of existence is only limited by our imagination. Hence, my practice consists of constantly exploring and expanding boundaries through a diverse range of media and techniques which I then implement in my performances and video works. I get inspiration from authentic dance practice, classical, ethnic and contemporary music, and studying films. I grow through traveling and learning about cultural specificities from the people I meet. My works are made to be seen by audiences individually as well as collectively in a gallery space. This allows them to activate their visual, auditory and tactile senses while being completely immersed in the work.
