OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

My work consists of drawings, photos, mixed media artworks and conceptual artworks. They are an investigation of concepts such as authenticity and objectivity by using a thorough approach. By challenging the division between the realm of memory and the realm of experience I reflect on the closely related subjects of archive and memory. This often results in an examination of both the human need for ‘conclusive’ stories and the question whether anecdotes ‘fictionalise’ history. By using an ever-growing archive of found documents to create individualistic artworks I absorb the tradition of remembrance art into daily practice.
