Through the universal language of image, I search for a common understanding, beyond the barriers of culture or identity. I mostly work with documentary images and often starts off with the observations of everyday situations and encounters. Afterwards, I depict and present the elements that are based on rhythm, repetition, cultural habits or routines and search through their poetics for their universal characteristics.
I often offer the same view, but presented in a different tempo or format, which makes everything slide into a slightly different frame, yet it still remains recognizable. With images and sounds I try to create an immersive space, where there is still enough room for ones own sensorial projections which are being triggered by it.
After graduating in 2018 I entered a trainee program of an agency of the United Nations, where I had the opportunity to help build their renewed audiovisual identity. After this experience I decided to focus fully on the development of my artistic practice. Since then, my work travelled through multidisciplinary platforms like art centers, film festivals and exhibitions, with documentaries, videos, multimedia installations and photography.
In 2020 I was granted the opportunity to start developing a documentary film for the Belgian national children's channel KETNET, as part of an initiative to involve young auteurs into the children's channel. In 2021 I was selected as one of 10 promising artists in Belgium through the Art Contest competition, followed by a month long exhibition in Vanderborght-complex in Brussels. In 2022 I will be part of the Belgian selected artists who were granted a residency at Cité Internationales des Arts de Paris, through the National Flemish State of Art Fund.
