I work in my practice with buildings and architecture as surfaces and images. The way we build our houses is a mirror of a society's ideals, dreams and self-understanding.
Through ceramic installations often in combination with photography, I try to delve into the stories we tell about ourselves through our buildings. I'm interested in the haptic materiality of clay, its possibilities and limitations as a building material that insists on a distinctive temporality and a bodily presence, and as such gives the photograph an interesting opponent, and unfolds an unexplored terrain between spatiality and image.
