Stronger on my Own!?
I am interested in humans, bodies, movements, directions and how they affect each other. Co-operations between people that occasionally, possibly, do not work. Can we as humans stand alone, or is interdependence necessary to reach our full potential? Can we experience loneliness in spite of co-existence? And can we feel togetherness in our loneliness?
I have created objects in which I hope the observer can recognize themselves in the emotions I wish to communicate. It may be about shame; shame for not fitting in, not belonging, or a nagging sensation that you are not "right". It may be the dark side which can arise through togetherness, like being situated in an environment where you are surrounded by people but still do not feel you belong; the feeling of release that a self-imposed seclusion can give.
