I think of my work as a statement in favor of sweetness and sentimentality. A playful discovery of the space in between joy and melancholia, it aims at getting lost in details and characteristics and thus negotiates 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 colors highlight – in a favorable or unfavorable way.
In my recent work I focus on installations that explore the connection between ceramic objects and space.
