In my artistic practice I examine the “embodiment of place” and what constitutes a sense of belonging from an analytical and cultural perspective. I place an emphasis on the aesthetic form, its characteristics, and its role in society. The formation of ideas through materiality and material investigation is a central component of my practice.

In my performative, sculptural, architectural and body-related work, I explore how the use of "feminine" and "masculine" charged shapes, colors, and materials are used to represent and perpetuate cultural values.

My investigation draws parallels between the urban landscape and the beauty industry and its influences on an individual's body and mind.

I compare urban renewal and redevelopment projects, to the way in which makeup is used to create a persona and I examine whether and how beauty industry aesthetics have similarities to the urban landscape's renewal processes.

I'm fascinated by the different stages of remodeling a city, and how we strive to achieve an impression of unity and balance in the urban landscape by the modernization and expansion of homogeneous mass-produced buildings and I draw parallels as to how people perform a uniformity through beautification that is meant to connect the individual to the society by the act of mirroring it.

Urban facade typology and texture is defined as a method or concept that aims to classify object elements in buildings. Similarly, the make-up palette is used to enhance or change the appearance of the face.

Simultaneously, I'm exploring themes of demolition and ceremony, connecting the act of progress and the sudden transformation of a construction site. The time during and after a building is being cleared, is equivalent to a cleaning and peeling session, rejuvenating the body, and I am investigating to what extent this process of changing and shaping, influences the consciousness of people living in the urban expanse of the metropolis.

In the process I investigate shapes, colors, and structures enmeshed in the materiality of the city, comparing these with humanity’s own need and use of cosmetics to appear most beautiful. I have translated this interpretation into a series of installations with performative interventions, sculpture, video, photography, collages and frottage-prints.
