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 see the ship while at the same time riding it?
