I am interested in requirements of matter for human perception. The crosspoint of environmental matter and physical matter of the human body is the starting point of sensing. By learning through somatic methods and contemporary dance about anatomical structures, I am relating my visual practice to the transformation of matter. It is the interrelation of the inside and outside what I want to bring to speak with my artwork. Experiments take a significant part in finding my way through symbolic layers, social meaning and material transformation. I use various media and I mainly create bodies of work to intensely treat the subject of my interest.
