My substances are born and created out of the street and not from within the closed studio.
creation is important for me, during outdoor events or just on the street, in
front of by passers, without separation from live and the happening around me.
That kind of action is a value of its own for me. That’s how I create an encounter and an invitation for a dialog, and a situation where I as an artist am accessible and my artistic practice is exposed. This situation allows an encounter between me and the viewer, free of mediators.
In my art comes out often the tension between the private space and the public space.
my art outdoors, from the comfort and connivance of my studio out to the wilderness of the street, where I am
encountered with all kinds of interactions; supporting or degrading – always
I expose the work of art as well as its process, and so I eliminate the backstage, the hideout.
The private and public are always nourished by one another, the traffic is bidirectional. I take from the street and ad to it.
The materials that I use are taken mainly out of the street and the garbage, les from the art shops. I use simple materials, leftovers which I find and reuse like scrap wood, construction site iron, thrown-away furniture and such. Important to say in this context that the values of recycle and ecology are important values which comes out of the process but they are not the goal itself.
I am an
activist, but I don’t define myself as one.
I create within and out of the Consumerism culture, which is part of the cultural environment that we live in today. the response to it comes out in my art in the form of visual over load, input-digestion-output of visual information.
