Visual artist doing memory work.


My work visually explores the presence of the past in our everyday life and takes a close look into the interrelation between personal recall and collective memory. In my practice I have found a way to capture what History tends to overlook due to its quotidian aspect and, by creating something new, preserve its legacy. This can be a piece of urban furniture or a neon sign falling apart; even a memory close to being forgotten.

I am fascinated by the concept of nostalgia. It’s a constant topic of research for me in its multiple aspects, from its political instrumentalization to the individual and collective need to create a narrative that helps us deal with the past. I’m also interested in the mutability of memory and how we impregnate our belongings with it.
