Artist Statement

I use installation and performance to reflect on borders and the spaces between bodies and cultures. I search for objects haunted by migration and use them to show the violence of lost hope. If the universe is a piece of music, then humans are either instruments or musicians-not the conductor. Artists can be both, playing themselves and responding to their environment. This idea may be enchanting, but I have come to realize its disconnect from reality. I find ideas where two worlds get entangled, where a gap happens in our humanity.
