“Using architectural theory as point of departure, my work explores the permeabilities between the body, complex emotional states and architectural spaces. I am interested in the sculptural idea of the room as a container or vessel, which objects and emotions can pour in and out of, and drain, leak or overflow.
At the same time I am interested in the status of the body itself as a container, where the skin is a membrane that holds us together. I make fetish-like objects, which inhabit a dark architectural space that uses ideas of ‘apotropaic’ (protective) magic that can defend, protect and constrain the body.”
