In my work I am interested in the aspect of time. The way I evolve, adapt and grow with it. Making by hand is very important to me. Time consuming manufacturing processes are a central part of my artistic procedure. Through it I try to find values beyond time efficient production and rapid economic gain, values that deal with harmony and a personal quality of life.
This work is a temporal and aesthetic exploration of the difference between the before and after of an object. Using as a starting point blankets, given to me by friends and family, as my material I aim to explore the way it’s destroyed and re-assembled into a new form and what changes in between. The relationship between chance and choice and the contradiction between destruction and reconstruction are one of my main subjects.
I use blankets because of their tactile qualities and the connotations of comfort and security they give as they are strong conductors for memories.
I build large forms with them which have visible scars revealing their materiality. Hanging them from the ceiling restricted by leather harnesses surrender to gravity, their deformations have multiple possibilities of change and adaptation.
