"Not being sure and trying to indulge myself in that condition, and not to see doubt as a negative factor but as a tool to create space to question normalized behavior. Both factors are part of the foundation on which I build my artistic practice. Maybe it is a counter reaction to the current time where; statements, big personalities, functionality and productivity are seen as important. What does it mean to not strive for those values? My work normally doesn’t manifest in just one specific medium, it consists of a combination of all sorts of materials and forms. Sculpture, performance and text are tools that I commonly use to interact with the audience. For instance, the sculptures I make consist mostly out of used objects and are continuously rearranged in different forms. They are in a constant state of doubt and trying not to be functional or outstanding."
