  ARTIST STATEMENT:

I focus on my own body as theme for my work and use various media, such as photographs, video and installations. Additionally I investigate space and appropriate aspects of different places and contexts – from subculture to science, from popular media to historical reference and feminist theory – for producing art and starting discussions on the role of artist and viewer.
