My works use images, texts and participation to address notions of collective and personal identities, as well as the intertextual meanings between them. In this sense my intention is to create works that subtly or explicitly question and challenge established social norms and ways of thinking. In my approach in making art, I either work with personal or collective experiences, which are later translated into an artwork, a series of works, or an ongoing work in process.
My work ranges from the context of experimental artist-run spaces to museums, galleries to various social institutions, and collaboration with other artists to ongoing research projects. My creative process is inspired by many things simultaneously as I often work with research, references and discourses. Although my work tends to take various forms of representation, it always aims to create new unpredictable ways of blurring the border between the audience, the work and the artist. This is why I often work with audience participation as a key element in my practice, in order to challenge one’s perception, perspectives and assumptions of what art is, or should be.
My current artistic interests are focused on notions of personal vs collective memory and identity. My recent projects explored themes of belonging and isolation, unrequited love and loneliness, as well as ways of remembering and forgetting. Contrary to how my works may seem assertive and exuberant, in reality I tend to show my art in a more taciturn way, which leaves more space for the audience to get familiar with the work and bring its own ways of seeing and interpretation. This is unlike the idea of unfinished work, but rather it is an open work, hence the use of audience participation.
