As an artist
I am mostly occupied with the issues of identity
– whether about the cultural inheritance as seen through the eyes of expatriates as well as in a broader
context – being a foreigner does not necessarily mean merely a matter of
nationality, but rather the fact of being "other".
being other than – willingly or unwillingly.. we all wish to belong and at the
same time to sustain our individuality. It's about the gap that we dare to keep
between ourselves and the others and most of the time the same gap that we are
unable to overcome to join the others. It's as well the gap in time between our
future, past and what we are now and how we depend on the past and the future.
My work is
about history lessons, boundaries, emotional dependency, our vulnerability
and connection to the world.
