artist statement

I try to find and explore the contradictions and slippages of everyday life and material through found and manipulated photographic images. Things-as-image has become our dominant way of communicating, of showing evidence, of registering one’s existence, of just-getting-by. What is at stake in this continuous re-doubling of ourselves and our world-as-image? Does the image constrain? Construct? Consume? Does it haunt? Build? Liberate?

The double function of image as ‘thing-in-it-of-itself’ but also as ‘thing’ “out there” is a strange kind of turbulence. How do we ask questions of this strange turbulence? How do we see while being seen? How do we fix a ship while at the same time riding it?
