My work proposes ideas and ways of imagining movable architecture. Paintings, works on paper and movable objects and installations set up new ways of perception, geometry and inhabitation. I am interested in building a space that cannot be quite understood where the perspective and illusion are in contradiction and where the space embodies both a depth field and a movable form coming forward, almost flying in space towards the viewer. The most recent paintings are part of a series called ‘Foreign Body’ which is about adaptations- not quite fitting but being considered fit, perceiving a structure or barrier but not being able to surpass or cross over on the other side of it while, attempting to reshape the body to adapt and fit the landscape but constantly fighting the political and social prejudice and limitations. The multiple layers within the paintings construct various viewpoints and cutouts which provoke the feeling of being submerged and removed from the landscape at the same time. The canvas becomes the stage for performing vulnerability, separation, and awkward interventions. The movable forms in transit amalgamate with dissident desires for resistance to demonstrate the constant fight with a world that moves forward too much on the basis of differences and conflicts rather than on connectedness and collaboration.
