my work is the result
of a research into the ways in which the (feeling of) self
is formed in interaction with the body

and vice versa:
how the body,
its inner chaos, its posture, the ways it moves, the ways it is dressed and cared for
is a reflection
of the prevailing fictions of self of a person

in this interaction
both body and self are fragile and temporary,
open constructions, vessels of exchange
of modes of existence

my works are signs to convey these interactions
that, in turn,
enable new interchanges
