About my work

(I feel a bit like a ghost lately) …
I feel a statement somehow contradicts the nature of what I do, mainly because I believe the experience should take place beyond the rigidity of the mind, like for example; eating drawings or dancing with clouds, becoming a horse or asking a volcano to write a poem. An important question for me is how can I transform our language-centered perception of the world in order to expand and speak to the uncertain? I guess my works are rooted in providing a different belief system, although I have to say these belief systems require certain complicit vulnerability and a state of deeper contemplation in order to allow us to BECOME the subject matter from within. In my work, I or we, have to believe we are truly transforming, otherwise it just does not work. When this transmutation occurs I think then some sort of real collective or individual cognition manifests, mainly because it takes you to a new place. Sometimes this transformation happens by playing, which in my opinion is the ultimate universal language. Only humans talk but everything else communicates in infinite ways. Can we communicate with a palm tree? Sure, but maybe it’s better if we first listen to one, then we might also understand how the palm tree communicates to the wind, the clouds and time and ultimately how it delicately whispers back to us. Communication is a circle, and like the circular function of the heart, blood has to return back to where it once left. Ok, so, what makes us human then? Maybe the answer is a question, maybe the best way to know this is by asking a turtle.
