I work predominantly on installations merging the imagery of abstracted body parts and plants, turning them into hybrid sculptural forms.
The works become objects imitating live bodies, tricking themselves into thinking that they have a pulse. These awkward hybrids, presented here as merchandise, attempt one last time to seduce and titillate the viewers’ senses.
The works explore how subjectivity can oscillate between human/animal/plant and object, pushing the material to see what it can do as a subject and finding ways to act out the complexities between desire, violence and disgust in the viewer.
A sense of unease and visceral displacement is created in this fluid nature that meshes things together.
