In my work, I like to think of images as objects, so I’m mainly interested in the materiality of analog collage and analog photography. What is important for me about objects is that they work as triggers for memory, and memory is one of the main topics I explore through my film practice. I’m constantly trying to find a dialogue between the different mediums I work on. I explore the expressiveness of fragmenting the human body to find new ways to interpret what a body can be.
