My work is about our relationship with home and domestic place and what it means to each of us as a physical place, a way of life and a map of memory. I draw the passing of time, repetitions of behavior, my interaction with people and their domestic spaces. All blends to create my sense of reality. I record, trace, map, alter, translate and transform, using sculpture, drawing, collage and installation. I draw and build fictive spaces to situate myself in ephemeral reality.
In my drawings and installations, the space I create becomes an imaginary space, which holds emotional experiences and contains compressed time of life.
