As a child, and still to this day I am deeply fascinated with explosions. Since he was very little, my father has produced a serious amount of bombs.
He would make small explosions in the school yard, on top of his teachers cars, blowing up mailboxes and trashcans, and accidentally sat fire to himself. Later in his life he started experimenting with blowing up telephone boxes and sheds. He would continue this practice throughout adulthood, and growing up has therefore for me involved a series of nerve-racking events. The first time I saw a terrorist attack on the television I was 4 years old. I was sitting in our black leather sofa, when they showed a recording of a bomb exploding from within a concrete building, resulting in its total collapse. With joy, I was jumping up and down clapping my hands laughing and cheering.
Through an experimental and often collaborative practice, my work revolves around the relationship between well known concepts such as nature, humans and technology. In a blur of autobiography and fiction, my practice explores the agency of the individual in a world of constant change, and navigates perceptual boundaries through participatory performance, installation and video. My work has been shown internationally including at the Ars Electronica Festival in Linz, Austria, Waterton Gallery, London, TEI Stockholm, Sweden, and at Thesmoforia Art Festival, Copenhagen.
