STATEMENT

As an artist, my practice revolves around exploring the mediation, tension, and transformation of diverse spaces. I immerse myself deeply in specific spaces, whether public, private, or in-between, using the elements present to create artistic interventions that transcend the boundaries of physical space. I explore body, architecture and object as forms in process in a dynamic interrelationship. My works invite the audience to reflect on their relationship with the spaces they inhabit, questioning the boundaries between the private and the public, the real and the imagined, and the ephemeral and the enduring.
