Omschrijving werk

In my work I am obsessed with the extinct forms of communication between humans and non-humans. As a form of contemporary animism I have practiced interviewing the chair, living together with slime moulds and stones, designing the human body odour collection with bacteria, drawing the city on the skin. Imagining those hybrid spaces of possible togethernesses and shared histories is well mixed with the thoughts from other disciplines (archaeology, biology, literature). My materials are the living forms of intimacy and attachment, the limits and desperations of those fields, originating from everyday situations and human habits that seem to define the concepts of our "getting in touch". I spend most of my time in the suburbs of human experience and collect the errors in communication (misbehaviour, mishearing) which are the potential and trigger for new forms of dialogue. Rather than bombarding the audience with as much as possible I try to make more space for their own potential of unexplored conversations. In my latest work "Conversations with Matter" I investigate the possibility of slowing down the human time perception to the one of stones. This project is inspired by Carlo Rovelli who thought that if we would live a billion years, then a stone would be a momentary getting-together of sand.
