On the one hand my work results in atmospheric, temporary site-specific installations, and on the other hand by dealing with the format of a book I create more permanent objects. My essential themes are appropriation of my own childhood and the transitional time of the recent European history. In my practice I have moved from representation to re-enactment, which represents itself in moving away from creating an illusion on two-dimensional surface towards combining different media. I combine disappearance of the image, working with actors, music, burning and other means of temporality, to re-enact situations like transition, growing up, separation from the loved ones and fading of memory. As a young artist moving across Europe in the search of possibilities to create, I understand my studies as a research in public fetishes and archetypes, a research in our desires and incapability. In order to position myself, the question I confront myself within my work is: “Under what circumstances have our paths collided and where are my traces leading me?”
