Omschrijving werk

Within my artistic practice, I’m always wondering where the boundaries for art are and on which side I want to stand. I don’t want to lead a revolution, but I simultaneously do not find satisfaction in standing on the sideline. I strive to have an impact without preaching dogmas or claiming the truth. The strength of art lies in making propositions, showing possibilities and reflecting ruthlessly what is. Therefore I am investigating the mechanisms of institutionalized belief and power structures and the opposition of active and passive roles within societies. My work consists of different narrative forms, such as situations, text and video, in which the interdependencies between different actors within those power structures are exposed.
