Art is my tool for exploring the power of destruction, which is a theme of my artworks.
Destruction, which I experienced at a young age, made me think about transience and changeability/fragility of places/spaces.
My primary interest as an artist is to create space within an artwork, which lends a unique, archetypal, specific territory that provides a foundation for reflecting on universal phenomena, such as identity in connection to a place, production and relativity of knowledge, decomposition of language, the void of human presence and decay of space. My artifacts originate from the traces I find—traces of place, of memory, of ideas and of time, traces of a culturally shaped life story that together comprise something of universal recognition, meaning and value. My works are grounded on a modus operandi that occupies different positions in different moments. My installations are heterotopias; they are based on navigation across a universe of signs and meanings, and inhabit spaces in between, rather than occupying any single place.
I strongly believe that art is a medium for dealing with those issues within a society, which cannot be addressed through political or social dialogue. Art should provide a space for the production of individual and collective insights, relative to the canonized worldviews and governing social and individual contexts.
