Intrigued by the borders on which we make agreements, adopt information or trust our senses, I like to work with the ‘real’ world as a material.

Most of my work feeds off the human(and personal) desire to grasp and to appoint our surroundings. In this unlimited world we need the concretisation of a beginning and an end, but a recording is bound to an accumulation of decisions and limitations. The horizon moves when I move. Volatility is constantly at odds with the way we perceive and capture things.


Fascinated by the limitations of our perceptional registers and the ontology of our environment, I like to explore the borders of our perspective and try to bring her closer at hand that way. Is it possible to dismantle agreements, beliefs and matter of course that stand between us and the world?


To bridge this restricted perception I research different ways of understanding and digesting our environment, resulting into a usage of various languages (bodily, representation, image, text, fantasy, present, past). 
My work consist mostly of performances that I capture in various ways. The method and act of documenting are often not only form but also part of my work. Dependent on the way of documenting, my work varies from books to sculptures, video's, letters, etc.
