STATEMENT

My interest lies in everyday ordinary things that are so close to us. I tread myself as the string player of bored and emptiness, the juggler of the order in everyday life. I find an artistic way to push those boring and normal things to the limits of tension and extremes. Interesting and incredible meaning is revealing.

 

Through this perspective, I interfere with the way that we as a culture understand ordinary things and then break the rules we use to experience them. I take these ordinary things, ‘re-engineer’ them and represent them as artworks that use installations, videos, and sounds. All these works are related to exploring modern people's living conditions, communication methods, spiritual pursuits.
