Artist statement

Fear, Passion.

Through different media – sculpture, painting, video, photography, I work with the bodily – physical and immaterial – in a search and interpretation for the baring of the single human life, in realising and pronouncing the sense of emptiness of being, which opens by the individual fitting in the immanent – the social and material in the absence of the transcendental in a thinkable balance. The naked body as an aesthetic ideal and category in the social field becomes undressed, while deserted in the political it turns bare. The bare life of HOMO SACER (Agamben). I try to reach to fine and figurative suggestions, coming from the sensations of this bare life, and in their sharing as an artistic practice the baring to get tolerable.
