Artist statement

In my art practice I investigate through medias and heterogeneous materials, the possibility for art to cross and connect distant areas to each other. Every aspect of my art practice is based on its relationship with the user. This means that the work takes shape just when the public and the private spheres come together.

A key dimension of my work is the interaction, the environmental unit between the body and the ambient, the precariousness, which form its creative undercurrent and help explore the mechanisms of the participation. I am interested in art as an all encompassing sensorial experience, acting upon the body through the senses and the mind.

For the residency program I would like to research on traditional weaving techniques and textiles uses in costumes in Finland, developing a collaborative project with the artist Panos Balomenos.
