Artist’s Statement
“The main topic of my work is the human body, its nonverbalcommunication system, representation and identity construction. I am researching these aspects mostly in found images and carving out the process of collective and individual reflections of human behaviour in the media. I work with different kind of materials like film and video, music or found pictures. By means of collecting, cutting and reassemling I try to open already defined views and creating voids with the objective of ambiguity of interpretation.”
