P-Gallery 2019

An insatiable curiosity about observing environmental and social situations directs me to make art. The camera is my dearest tool to capture the moving environment, after which I can edit the image in the direction I want. I am often fascinated by the whole comprehensive process of viewing, which I use especially when building space-based installations. Maintly I work with photography, video, sound and installation and I often use experimental approaches. Recent projects I have deals themes like a place attachment, a determination of consciousness and Paradise.
