ARTIST STATEMENT

 

"WHAT DRIVES ME IS THE EVER NEW SEARCH FOR ATMOSPHERE, FOR A CONNECTION BETWEEN AUDIENCE AND PLAY. SPACE DOES NOT SERVE AS PURE ILLUSTRATION OF CONTENT BUT AS AN AREA OF INTERACTION AND CREATING. THIS IS THE TASK OF TELLING STORIES, ALMOST THE DUTY.

RAISING QUESTIONS RATHER THAN DISMISSING THE AUDIENCE WITH DECORATIVE ANSWERS. “
