Currently I work with relatively small objects in ceramics, where the form is based on vague memories from my childhood and upbringing in rural areas. I try to mirror the challenges and vulnerability in exploring and discovering the invisible, fragile interactions between humans – blended with the perception of raw and solid materials in agricultural implements, and tools for animal husbandry. A world that is safe, yet scary and brutal at the same time.
"Archive of diversity"
Memories change over time and the content of truth is impermanent. As I experience the world based on fragmented ideas and rapid shifts in focus, commitment and engagement, I want my artwork to contain the same ability to transform.
