NO ONE TOLD YOU I WAS FROM THE FUTURE
Today, I believe the question between fiction and reality is outdated: we live in a porous world where the fine line is disappearing (again). In 2018, I won the RCA's Onno Boekhoudt Travel award to take part in a shamanic training in Bali. It permitted me to merge my spiritual believes with my studio practice. My creations delve in my immersive experiences by embracing the animistic vision. I am creating my own shamanic apparatus as a physical, material exploration of a metaphysical dimension. I am developing my own Disco Materialism, merging organic/man-made, fake/imagined, raw material qualities with contemporary digital associations. We have a tendency to look at the world without actually seeing it, I am challenging our perceptions by anthropomorphizing my materials showing a living materiality where rocks look back at you.
