Artist Statement

‘Using several mediums, I build narrative installations which aim to connect personal experiences with collective memory. Within my practice, I’m fascinated by the traveling of natural and industrial objects and the constant changing and shifting of ecological landscapes, caused by human influence and symbolism. By reviewing certain moments through the lens of the ‘bricoleur’ (Claude Lévi-Strauss, 1962) and further elaborating on them by the constant use of association, my work is emphasizing the strange accumulation of  traveling phenomena which happen around us on a daily basis, creating new contexts which shape the way in which the world is experienced within the meta-modern times. Following these phenomena can lead to a camel in the Arctic desert or a singing stone in the Italian Dolomites, constantly dipping in and out of the realms of fiction and reality in the process.’
