“I am an analog artist creating photo objects, short films, and installations tackling themes of gender, self-representation, mental health, and the relationship between participation and observation.”
How do you feel as an artist living in Berlin?
Being an artist in Berlin makes me feel intimidated, inspired, motivated, and free. It allows for me to embrace any identity I feel and experiment and collaborate with an incredible international community of artists.
What is your biggest inspiration?
This is a hard question, I would have to say the queer performance community in Berlin.
They push the boundaries of art, create visually time-sensitive pieces that require an active viewer, and ask questions that linger with me for days.
What keeps you sane in this insane world?
What do you think about binary system?
Push the boundaries, and also understand that it is powerful and impacts everyone.
What makes you feel at home?
Being surrounded by small objects I have collected through travels, and with people who accept me and push me.
