Statement

My work is centered on LANGUAGE and sign systems. I'm working with texts and images: a project can comprise only visualized language or only images. A text becomes image or images become text, story. The most important is the deconstruction of the process of perception, as well as the decontextualisation of the well known. It deals with difficulties of perception, categories of true and fake, memories and false memories, truisms. Mostly conceptual, often serial, material is not fixed or defined.
