With an academic background in fine arts/culture- and social anthropology, my art-making emerges in a transitional space between art, anthropology and everyday reality with tentacles in and out of different disciplines. The fusion between art making, living, thinking and being etc. is unconditionally inextricable. It implies for me basically to things – art as conceptual idea and art as manifestations of gestures into the living. In doing so the material condition and visual instance are as important as the idea that each work/constellation conveys for the possibility of its (personal and impersonal) consequences. It leads to the agency of the work itself where conceptual ideas may lead to personal moves and vice versa.

Attentive the process of acquiring, producing, co-producing, adapting, inhabiting, transferring, integrating, reflecting and disseminating different forms of knowing. I approach art-making as situated practice, work at various sites, and sometimes approach research collaboratively and seek to work beyond disciplines. Interested in embodied criticality I question what can be grasped, the possible agency of a “work” and the context in which it is placed. Currently, I work with the support through receiving a grant from Kunstfonds.
