Through performance I explore humanity by braking it into pieces, body and it limitations, womanhood and intimacy, participation and challenge, ethics and community, how much is enough and too little, as well as – and especially – how performance can be used as a tool in creative process. I create fragments and explore different entities that can be created of them. I am interested in what performance leaves behind, a trace, and often my performances lead into an installation or video.
Through performance I research different aspects of time. I aim to create a space where time does not exist, or at least it feels stretched. In my work I try out different methods to achieve it: such as repetition and slowness. My works often show process and are meditative as their nature. As a performance artist I am not interested in theatricality. I try to step into each performance I make as a blank, open particle. I aim that the action in the piece is the art and the trigger of the experience and me as the performer is just one part of the whole.
