Artist Statement

I think of my work as a statement in favour of sweetness and sentimentality. A playful discovery of the space in between joy and melancholia, it aims to loose in details, characteristics of shapes and negotiating the nature of impermanence. As a result, ideas and conclusions about our contemporary era as well as questions regarding the current zeitgeist emerge.

My choice of durable materials is deliberate: clay and porcelain embody the conceptual ideas behind my practical work as they enable the artist to experience both the spontaneous sculptural gesture and the conservation of it. The vessels serve as receptacles for my ideas and thoughts and in particular remind the spectator of female bodies that have been dressed up. The colours highlight – in a favourable or unfavourable way – as well as hide, dissolve or round the shape of my works and thus resemble items of clothing that establish different and diverse relationships with the body they dress.

As Richard Avedon said:“We all perform. Therefore, I believe in performance.”
