Artist Statement

​

​

In my work I combine diverse media such as drawings, photography, video/performance into three dimensional installations. 

I am interested in the interface of different planes of reality and materials and the associations and shifts (in meaning) between language, image, object and form that emerge in the process. Thematic references in my artistic practice are associations, projections and metaphors related to the sea. Definitions and terms from seafaring and marine science, as well as illustrations from travel and reference literature are often starting points or serve to recontextualise my works.
