Lives and works in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
The relationship between humans and nature, the detachment between us and our origins, are the basis for my research and work.
Through the use of various mediums, drawings, time-based video and performance I want to transport the viewer to a world of more primary needs and emotions to restore this contact.
My work plays on the primal instinct of the viewer. Ideas of warmth, shelter and safety are in stark contrast with a fear of the dark and the unknown.
I am fascinated by the border between different worlds and realities, were they are thin and permeable. Traveling between worlds through passages in everyday life.
