Lives in Stockholm, Sweden








My work is take intuitive ideas that emerged and converting them into both poetic gestures based on participatory activities for engaging people in situations outside their everyday life and exchange frameworks for leading the audience through the relational experience. To convey it, I am working on processes in which I embed myself in a place where I make a proposition: to accept my invitation to engage and get a new feeling-post encounter.

From this point, I understand the role of artist as a catalyst for breaking the normalcy of the quotidian life: if people run I propose go slowly, if people live in cities I bring the nature into the public space, if people don't talk to each other I endeavor a discussion space. I believe in the social function of art as a binding element for a variety of communities coexisting in the same society. In a our currently world which is constantly in flux, art should flow at the same pace, and in the same space, as the cosmopolitan society.

Art exists to make the invisible visible and to be the embodiment of the unexplainable. Art is a pause for making the spectators aware of carelessness in the environment. Art is a meeting point of shared social values and the conviction that the concreteness of the sensible world can transform life as it is lived with others.
