Omschrijving werk

Since I have moved to the Netherlands in 2016, I have been focusing on the practice of everyday life as a way of reclaiming agency within the folds of the social order. By instigating simple gestures, I attempt to reveal structures that might underpin and undermine the everyday reality of experience. My practice can also be considered as daily revolutionary gestures against the structures and compulsions of our forced political and economic lives. These micropolitical actions can interweave and juxtapose the personal scale of experience and the historical and political scale of collective being. Those performative actions are shared with the public through the storytelling. I believe that the whole process of my practice can be also a meaningful way to connect two domains called art and life as an artist.
