Research about our past and our future provides us knowledge; we investigate, analyze, restore, conserve and archive to enable ourselves to understand our place in time and space.
My research deals with the disturbance of this knowledge, starting from the fascination for fragments, curious about the absent parts, the still not finished stories and no less the void that a fragment carries along with it.
It is my ongoing investigation into the field of ‘no man’s land’; the boundary between the known and the unknown. A thin line, also called the present in which the only moment we have is the world of fragments.
Porcelain with an elegant, graceful, and above all fragile appearance is counterpart to morbidity, intense pain and abruptness; anchored in a continuous dialogue, a disturbing duality. At the same time stuck together in a never-ending solidarity in which porcelain in the form of a seducer makes you humble towards life itself.
