The (straight) line is a recurrent theme in my work, be it contour line, coastline, frontline or border line. A line might be excavated, walked, drawn or cut. My practice is akin to a series of on-going ‘attempts’ to analyse, verify and record the occurrence of lines within the landscape. Yet their representation and material expression never coincidences with the physical reality. Works such as The Map is not the Territoryand Montedellartevisualize the multiple underlying structures and boundaries of a given terrain and the ways in which these are transcended. Both of these works investigate a particular landscape and consider how people relate to the concept of the territory. While the methodology underpinning each project was the same, the varied geographical and political landscapes generated two completely different artistic outcomes. 


Within my work, I search for boundaries in terms of both content and form, while also striving to attain an objectifying position. My intention is to visualize, but without giving the impression that I can close the gap between two positions or overcome and resolve conflicts. As an artist, I endeavour to be sensitive, feeling, consolatory and contrary, and aim to reveal, to engage and be engaged. I explore how I can adopt a position within an art world in transition and, at the same time, aspire to consider that stance from an expanded concept of art. I’m constantly looking for ways in which to connect my personal artistic practice to public participation, and with a diverse range of audiences.


Key concepts in my work: the dialectic between grandeur and insignificance, transience and timelessness, visibility and invisibility, constructing and dismantling, the perception of nature vis-à-vis cultural mores, beauty and horror, safety and danger, safeguarding borders and surpassing them, delineation and infinity, chaos and control, universality and individuality.


I use the language of art to formulate my views on issues such as globalization, increasing diversity (including the refugee situation) and economic expansion versus insurmountable ecological problems. My work is an attempt to expose the fundamental structures and lines therein.
